Okay, it wasn’t too traumatic to register for Strawberry Fields, despite the images of 10 foot surf at the LA Tri Club Year End Party (YEP). Yes, the water’s going to be freakin’ freezing, but that’s a great excuse to buy yet another wetsuit, right?

But signing up for Wildflower…..ewwwww, kinda scary. One of the hardest Oly courses out there? and I’m tackling it as my first?

No guts, no glory. What’s a little more pain. And so on.
