I am confident I can finish the race. I'm confident I can improve on last year. Is there really anything else I need to do? I have time goals in my head. Goals that are probably pipe dreams, but goals none the less.
Here is what I'm hoping for. Again, a little pie in the sky, but worth trying for.
Swim-38:00 (2 minutes faster than last year)
Bike-3:25:00 (18 minutes faster than last year)
Run-2:15:00 (25 minutes faster than last year)
That would get me around a 6:20:00 race. I'd be SUPER happy with that. Last year my nutrition (or lack of nutrition) killed me. I feel like I'm on top of it this year. I've learned my lesson after the bag of goo from last year.

Now that my super secret goals are out there for everyone to see, I'm reminded of this quote. I'm thinking about taping it to my bike :)
