2 more Triathlons

I have signed up for two more triathlons, that will be three total and my goal this rookie triathlon year has been met. The second tri is the Playtri Festival in Las Colinas June 3 (500m-12mile-3.1mile) followed up by the Dirty Rock Tri June 10th which is a very short race(150m-6mile-2mile). The Playtri Festival is the one that has a grip on me. The fear of that 500m swim is a daunting one i need to overcome. Every triathlete faces it. Im starting to deal with it now and it motivates me when doing my swim workouts. I think about how lonely it is out there in that nasty man made pond when fatigue starts to whisper in your ear and you start to loose your rhythm, and my thoughts go from 'inhale, hold, exhale, inhale, hold, exhale' to oh !@#$ what have i got myself into. Ah yes, panic is knocking on the door...and as I sit here thinking about all this I start to get fired up and angry like the dude standing in front of the firing squad, "lets go, lets get the suffering over with already...."
