Have you ever went into a race with that weird feeling that something just isn't right? Have you you ever drove 5 hours plus to a half-iron race or longer ALONE knowing that it probably wasn't the brightest move?
Those were just a few of the questions that were running through my head going into the Augusta 70.3. In addition:
I still had not signed up....
Getting to the race would require a 9 hour drive ALONE...
With my whole team bailing, I would be staying alone too..
I had to ask myself: Aren't we in this sport to have "FUN" in the first place?
It was just all together a really bad idea. But what can a girl do when she is training her a## for this silly race? There was no way I could waste the hard training I've put in the past few months. I am determined to get a solid 70.3 under my belt before IMTX. A spring or OLY would not do the job.
After some careful research, I have found a new option: The Revolution3 Cedar Point. Goodbye WTC and hello REV3! I've have heard nothing but good things about their races :) And with the close proximity to Pennsylvania my mom aka personal paparazzi will also be able come out and cheer!
(Sigh of relief)... Although I can't say I've mastered the whole bike flying ordeal quite yet.... there is a first for everything isn't there? I think I can swing it.
Sometimes you have to go with your gut. I hope I made the right move. Any fellow bloggers headed that way September 11th? Hope to see ya there ;) I got a feeling... Rev3 is going to be a blast!
