Well, we’re getting ready to head out to the Gear West Duathlon this morning where Matt and I will be competing as Team Happy Pants. We are HOPING (repeat: HOPING) to take nearly 3 minutes off our time from last year, set a new team course record, and walk away with first place.
Don’t get me wrong - I’ll be giving 100%, but I just don’t know if we can do it.
Maybe it’s because Matt crashed his bike 3 days ago (see previous post).
Maybe it’s because I spent all week working on our porch remodel and now my hamstrings are screaming (mostly from ripping up the carpet on Thursday).
Maybe it’s because I’m not training for a marathon like I was last year at this time.
Or maybe I’m just dreading that course - it’s a super off-road cross country course, and it takes a LOT out of you.
Regardless, Matt and I are going to go bust our butts and see what we can do. Pharmie’s coming along to take photos, so I’ll be back with a story later today. Off to the races!!!
