So I've made it my goal to run a "tri"-fecta this year- three triathlons. I've already registered for two and the third opens registration this Thursday. I'm really torn. I want to register for the Olympic distance instead of the sprint for this third one, since it'll be my last tri for the season. But I don't know if I can do it. The swim is just shy of a full mile and I'm not a good swimmer. And I've never run a 10k before. I'd like to push myself, but I honestly don't know if I'd even make it out of the water. Last year when I ran the Iron Girl the swim was only 600meters and I was sucking in water and air pretty hard the last 150meters. And my ability to train for the swim portion is dictated by the lake temperature here, and since we're still going to get snow for a few more months, I might only get a solid month of swim training in if I'm lucky.
Also, to help motivate me, I plan to order a custom shirt for myself. Anyone know of a good site I can customize a colored tank top however I'd like with no minimum order and that won't cost a million dollars? Custom Ink has a 6 shirt order minimum and VP only offers white t-shirts. Although, I did whip this up on there just in case.
