Thats right, they start things early in Huntington I guess. So it will be a Sunrise start at 6:50 tomorrow morning for the Surf City Marathon. I have the typical race nerves and anxiety (actually kinda atypical for me) but we shall see. I am feeling pretty good (I think). Its kinda strange, I have never really gotten used to this whole taper business and it is playing havoc on my mind. But, again, we shall see.
We have assembled a little crew of 5 and set a challenge. Whoever doesn't beat their respective goal has to rock a speedo only in a sprint tri this season a-la Faris Al-Sultan. For the sake of all the spectators at the sprint, I will do my best to prevent them from having to suffer through such an atrocious site. So its sub 2:55 or eternal embarrassment. Should be motivation enough, don't ya think?
