The Decision Has Been Made
After some research and soul-searching, I have decided the St.John’s Triathlon will be my “A” race for 2014. Why did I pick this race? Well for one, it will be back in my home province of Newfoundland where I have not spent any amount of time in almost six years. It also does not hurt that the George St Festival starts right after the race. The second reason is, if I do not have a good race, I can try to redeem myself three weeks later at the Cornwall Triathlon.
When looking at the course, it seems to have a some degree of difficulty and a little bit challenging which is another reason I chose this race over Cornwall as my A race. As anyone knows, the weather in Newfoundland at anytime of year can present its’ own challenges to what you do outside. I noticed in the 2013 race that at the beginning of the race, the weather was nice but then the wind picked up and a short time later the rain started to pour.
I am excited to return home but more excited for solid race performance. So let the training begin.
Until next time…..Goals are dreams with deadlines.
