Well, I did it! I registered for the USAT Athena National Championship Half Distance race on June 14th in Grand Rapids, Michigan. This year is my year of the half distance triathlons so I might as well dream big!
I raced in last year's USAT Athena Championship in the sprint and olympic distances. I had a great time and ended up placing 2nd and 3rd respectively. This year they are offering the half distance as well so, staying true to this year's goal, I picked that distance to race.
I am super nervous but also excited. A friend of mine told me, "Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go!"
