Big weekend for me coming up. On Saturday my Youth Football team will take the field for the first time. My 10, 11 and 12 year olds have been working tremendously hard since August and have to be sick of all the sprints I've been making them run so far. As the head coach I can only hope that I've prepared them for success, that I've taught them the right techniques and that I've showed them the right place to be - its all about them executing and believing in themselves that will determine if we win or loose. Must be how an endo feels when they send us back into the world!
The other big thing coming up this weekend is the start of my triathlon career! I'll be competing in the Bear Mountain Triathlon on Sunday and absolutely can't wait. Although I'm completely fearful of my blood sugars during this race (had a frustrating episode on Monday) I know I've been training incredibly hard and that with enough Gatorade during the event I'll be able to finish it. Going into this one I don't have a ton of expectations, it will be the first time I have to do a transition and the first time I'm doing an open water swim. So on Sunday keep your fingers crossed that my bs will remain high during the 1/2 mile swim, 12.4 mile bike and 3.1 mile run - I'll have some pictures of the event posted next week.
Here's to some great events this weekend and the hope that my blood sugar doesn't let me down!
