With this being my first major tri, I trudged through page after page on the web researching triathlons and IRONMANS (of course I want to be an IRONMAN too) and found a "newbies tri training plan", set it all up on Google Calendar, talked about it some more, and some more and some more. Told all my friends and now they don't just think, but now know that I am a super workout freak. :)
At noon today I took the WALK.
WALK = CHARGE ON THE CARDI plunked down the plastic as I registered for the Pigman Long Course August 17 and the Topeka Tinman Triathlon June 14, 2008.
Next step: Inform the sherpa(s). Head sherpa was only worried about a conflict with Husker Football. Hmmm. Not sure he understands the role of head sherpa. [Note to self: schedule conference with head sherpa about the magnitude of a tri]
I am in, I am on my game, and ready to roll!
