On Thursday I registered for my first triathlon! I woke up on Thursday and checked my email only to see that a triathlon I had been eyeing up had a special deal for the first 50 people to sign up. I originally wasn't sure if I should register for this triathlon because it was more expensive than I was looking for and would be after my desired A race, but after I saw the deal I couldn't pass it up.
So as of Thursday I will officially be racing the Keystone State Olympic Triathlon on August 26! Even though this is the first triathlon I have signed up for it will not be my first of the year. I had wanted to do this tri last year but with college starting a few days later, moving into my apartment and being hit with a hurricane it just didn't work out. I am excited for this triathlon because it is close enough to my house that I won't need to stay overnight. I am all about saving money on races this year.
Because this will most likely not be my A race I probably won't be training specifically for this race. I am already signed up for a half marathon in September and am not sure what my A race will be in the fall either. I am just so excited for the upcoming tri season and to see what I can accomplish this summer.
