the IM dreams... they are a'comin' !
last night's gem:
I got out of the water in 1:11 (<---- not the bad part!) and went into the changing tent -- which was a locker room. None of the bike bags were in there -- me and this other girl were yelling out "has anyone seen the swim to run bags?!?" finally they were brought in and we had to sort through them to find our bags. It was a cluster. I realized that I had forgotten ALL of my nutrition (Infinit bottles and Payday bars) and all I had was Gatorade and water. I started running to the bike and I was crying because I had practiced my nutrition for so long and didn't have any of it with me. Then I got lost trying to find my bike - there were all of these doors and weird exits. Once I finally got to the bike I quit. I thought to myself "this isn't a DNF because it's not the real race" and it turns out it wasn't... it was a practice race and because the bike bags were messed up the "race judge" cancelled it.
