    You can and will do this. My adrenaline/slightly dehydrated BG spikes were significant, and my tris were much shorter than yours. My only advice is: this is what you’ve been training for. Trust that you are ready TODAY, right now, let alone how good you’ll be after another week of training. Enjoy this week! Oh, one other thing: you’re really going to like the event. A lot.

    I’m so excited for you! You’re going to have a great time… and a miserable time, too. A 70.3 is long enough for you to go through all the emotions and come full circle (or two). The finish line will be amazing, and you’re going to get there!

    If you’re still having trouble with anxiety, you might try what I did before my first tri and then again before my first 70.3 and my Ironman: visualize your plan and answer all the thoughts you have about what might go wrong. Go through your race in your mind… from when you arrive to set up your equipment through the time waiting for the start, all of the racing, and the transitions. What will you do every time you switch from one part to another? What will you do every half-hour or so during the race. Do this enough, and you will see where you need a contingency plan, and you’ll feel more mastery over your overall plan. Always be sure to finish by watching yourself cross the finish line. :-)

    Eventually you’ll start to believe what we all know: You’re going to be great!
