Just waiting...

Kayle and I spent a ton of time talking today, trying to choose the best tri for us to take on and...

I think we decided!

I know we had decided on a tri in Galveston, Texas, for April 4, but our financial and work/school situation led us to not liking that idea much anymore. We hadn't made it official, but I'm getting antsy for some finality, so we looked into others.

The King Tut tri in McKinney, Texas,
was our favorite. It's two weeks later, which unfortunately falls on my sister's birthday weekend, but other than that, it's great. Its the exact distance we're looking for (a classic sprint), and is on Sunday, so I won't have to miss work. Plus, hotels in McKinney are way cheaper than Galveston. It's a way better option and we're happy about it. She wants to wait until next month when she has birthday money, but I'm eager. I think we're going to check with family and then try to at least get hotel reservations in the next few days!

Woot! Thought I'd share!

Congrats on choosing a race. I chose my first race about a month ago. I needed that race date to really get training. My first race will be a Mini Mightyman (shorter than a sprint: 400 mtr swim, 6-mile bike, 2-mile run) in April and then my first sprint triathlon will be Mighty North Fork, here on Long Island, NY, in July. It's exciting!
