Thank you, Joanna.
Ok ok, panic attack aside, I really am excited for the triathlon that is in 10 days (oh god 10 days). My favorite quote from the article above, besides the snarky, jaw-dropping, pit-in-my-stomach creating ones, is this:
"When you first transition from running to triathlon, it’s best to think of a triathlon as an extended workout. The swim is your warmup, the bike is a good way to dry off from the swim, and THEN you jump into the real race."
So I can do this, really, I can. If you have words of encouragement you'd like to share, by all means, share away! I could use it.
