A Sprint Triathlon is still a RACE..and Im NERVOUS

I heard it from my family today: Oh Missey..this race is no big deal..its just a can do those for practice now.

If there is one thing I have learned over the years of training and running matter what the race


Its when people get cocky and think its "no big deal" is when you run into trouble!! I learned this lesson all too well during the Amelia Island Half Ironman last year. I figured I was running an Ironman in a few weeks so I had this race sewn up!! A few hours in the medical tent with a reaction to jellyfish stings and a DNF.

You never know what will happen when you put on a race number..but there are a few things I know for sure...Im gonna go give it my best shot and run against my watch and nothing else..

As always..Ill keep you posted!!
