My Mind Won’t Shut Up

The weather looks good … maybe I won’t need the wetsuit after all …

Let me test this water … just one foot ..

JESUS!!

There is NO way that water is over 78 degrees …

I need the wet suit …

No … if I wear it I will have to start in the rear … can’t afford to start in the back. Gonna end up there eventually anyway.

Wait … was that a fucking fin in the water I just saw??

How do sharks deal with the cold?

Maybe I can imagine myself to be a shark … dum dum … dum dum …

Sitting on the beach waiting for a wave start SUX … 

I think my watch is going to die before I actually get to start the race … 

Why do I always get the dumbest cap color? Neon Red? What the Hell??

I wonder how far out I can actually walk before I have to start swimming?

There is NO way that is only .9 miles … 

Oh man …  there’s my wave call … crap … leave the wet suit John … suck it up …

This water is COLD …. 

OK…wade out … don’t run … take your time … 

OK … face in the water … first buoy rounded … 

Stretch …. Grab … Breath …. Stretch …. Grab … Breath …. Stretch …. Grab … Breath …. Stretch …. Grab … Breath ….

Hey … KC was right!

OK … buoy is ahead … no problem …. 

Stretch …. Grab … Breath …. Stretch …. Grab … Breath …. Stretch …. Grab … Breath …. Stretch …. Grab … Breath …. Site

How the Hell did it get over there?????

Crap ….

    Don't forget, as soon as you come up the stairs onto solid ground, drop to your knees, kiss the ground like the Pope does, then haul ass to the bike transition because now it's game on!

    Love it! Seaweed! Sums up what does through my mind too. I usually hate the cap colors I get assigned.

    The half is in a lake Summer. No sharks. You only have to worry about Lake Zombies. You know…the bodies laying on the bottom that randomly float up? 🙂
