What’s that number?? Oh….that’s my number from today’s triathlon….that got CANCELLED! Here in the Tampa Bay, we were expecting some rain. When Sam and I arrived a little after 6:00am at Ft. DeSoto, it was a little windy but everything was a GO!
Selfie in the Transition Area!!
Our little “Tri” group. We’re going think of a name! 3 of the 4 of us are mothers and have mommy “guts”, so I thought why not Tri Guts???
We headed to the swim, which because of the “inclement weather”, was in the lagoon and not the bay (as originally planned). My wave time was 7:04am, but it was on hold. We waited…we waited…and waited. An hour (and change) had passed and we all finally got word that the race had been cancelled. The race directors told us that we would hear soon if the race would be a) rescheduled or b) get a refund. So, I wait….
We retrieved our belongings (all the while being sarcastic…you know…”I FINISHED!!”; “I won my age group!!!”…stuff like that!) and got to the car. We were STILL waiting for the down pour…
Nope…not yet! I/we were kind of pissed because we didn’t see WHY the race had to be cancelled. We thought we have been well into the bike before it started, but I guess that wasn’t our call. Angry or not…we were DONE!
As we get closer to my house…
…guess they knew what they were talking about,huh?? #safetyFIRST
It was POURING by the time I got home. I figures since I was already dressed for some exercise, I might as well do something!
Couldn’t do anything with THIS….
DREADmill time! I ran a little on the ‘mill and rode the stationary bike for 5 miles.
In case you want to know, THIS is what you do when you are ALL marked up and no RACE to go to! 😉
Truth be told, it was probably a good thing that the race was cancelled. I wasn’t really prepared for it. And I was really going into this for the ass beating to help me back on track!! Guess everything happens for a reason…..
How was YOUR Saturday???
LOOK….now we can….
