Want to know what my favorite pre-race meal is?

Pizza!

Specifically homemade pizza using Publix pizza dough that can be found in the bakery section.

Derek and I split the dough in half and made two large pizzas – one for me and one for him. ๐Ÿ™‚

Tomorrow I am racing in my SECOND sprint triathlon! Eekk!!!

Can you believe it was over a year ago that I was competing in my first?

I’ll never forget that race. It was the week after my sister’s accident and I swam, biked, and ran in her honor.

It was one of the most exciting races I’ve ever competed in thanks to the extra support and transitions.

I actually can’t believe I let so much time go between tris – I hope to not let that be the case again. ๐Ÿ™‚

Last year my official finish time was 1:36:44.146 This year I am aiming for around 1:30:00. I feel much more prepared this time around and really feel like I can kick some serious booty tomorrow morning. Let’s hope all that training paid off!
