Ready, Set, GO!

Yesterday, I registered for my triathlon! I'm really excited.

Here are some details:
*It's in Johnstown, PA. About 45 mins from Indiana.
*I get a free t-shirt because I pre-registered
*The Johnstown YMCA is sponsoring the event
*The swim is 400 meters, which is 8 laps in a 25 meter pool.
*The bike is 21 miles (which was not what I expected). Mainly flat with 2 moderate hills.
*The run is a 5K on a flat course.
*They are only accepting 184 participants.
*I really need to start riding my bike.
*The race is USAT sanctioned, but I don't know what that means.
*It's on July 28th, 2007

Yeah! I'm excited to do this. I feel like I've worked hard (probably not hard enough) and that I can do this! Anyone want to do the race with me? Just wondering :)

So when you saying that the bike is 21 miles and NOT what you expected - what *exactly* do you mean?? Is that more or less than you expected - just curious! :)

thinking your totally crazy but I totally admire you for it!

I was under the impression that the bike was only 14 miles. Which was really okay. But 21 seems so much more daunting :)
