Lisa said that after last year. Not me. She said it. I wouldn’t dare.
This year, she looks forward – 2 sleeps away – to a second ride with the advantage of knowing what’s what.
Looking back, I was under prepared. In fairness, I think there’s very little that can prepare you for the first time but I’d just completed my first half ironman (which I didn’t really train specifically for as my A race that year was an Olympic) and only had about two weeks of specific training.
