Brass Tacks: Marble Falls Triathlon

Every year I plan on Triathlon season running from Memorial Day (CapTexTri) to Labor Day (Tri Rock Austin), but then end up only running those two races. There are tons of triathlons over the summer, and I always plan to incorporate shorter races into my training plan to culminate with an Olympic PR on Labor Day. The plan here was really no different. I’m still gearing up for Half Iron at the end of September, so getting more race experience in the run-up seemed like a great idea. Running an intermediate distance race before my PR Goal Race in September seemed like a great idea. Racing a new course to vary my experience seemed like a great idea.

But somehow corking the wine bottle seemed like a bad idea; getting to bed timely on Race Day Eve seemed like a bad idea; and actually running this damn race seemed like the worst.

In the end, I made the call.

Total time: 00:00:00
Average pace: 00:00/M
Gender place: NONE
Overall place: NONE

Lows: Bank account balance after paying a tri entry fee and not actually doing the tri.

Highs: Um . . . packet pickup?

Family time > Race Day.

Resist this. You can’t. Because family trumps racing.
