Pre-Race: Atlanta/Latham Road Race

 Ruh-roh. They look pretty tough, don't they?

Tomorrow I'm doing my first-ever cycling road race.

Remember the first time I did a cyclo-cross race and totally had my ass handed me?


I'm nervous about this one. I've never raced like this. I have minimal experience with pack riding. I don't know if I'll be able to keep up. I'm not hip on the etiquette and afraid I might embarass my team (oh, and myself, too). I'm afraid I might crash and there goes my half Ironman. I'm afraid I might do something dumb and make a whole bunch of other people crash. I'm afraid everyone will be snooty and/or bitchy.

I'm just generally kind of freaked out.

But whatever. The worst that can happen is that I finish dead last and everyone is already gone by the time I get back.

And that's already happened once before.
