If you read the blog - and somebody out there must - then you may have seen that since I could not race the latest Trilogy Triathlon I was planning to race this event as my August race.
But - I don't want to and so I'm not going to. There are three reasons.
- I am undertrained. I haven't been swimming. Going into a race undertrained gives me swim anxiety which is not fun at all. Not to mention I don't really want to swim in this location.
- I have a personal policy of not participating in first-time races and this is a first-time race. My policy comes from personal bad experiences so while I was considering breaking my personal policy I'm not gonna.
- I would just do this race to cross it off the monthly list and I think that's not the best reason to run a race which is a long way of saying: I don't want to do it.
So there it is - my decision.
You can now return to your normal daily programming.
