I had a dream last night that I showed up for a triathlon that required a wetsuit and although I had a wetsuit with me I had never tried it on. I was immediately struck by the reality that I might embarrass myself in the process because I had never gotten a wetsuit on in my life. . Then I realized that I was in my nightgown and I didn’t have any other clothes with me. I thought about how really embarrassing it would be when I got to T1 and had to take the wetsuit off. Was I destined for a naked tri? I did put the suit on and it was sort of big but that was good because it went on easily – but then it wasn’t on (dreams are like that). We were getting off the bus at the start and it was in the middle of nowhere. So there I was, in my nightgown, with my too big wetsuit and with no clothes to wear underneath. What to do? Dreams being what they are I was soon in my sisters house, relieved that I could probably find something of my niece’s to wear. Only I couldn’t. I rummaged through drawers in every room but found nothing. The start was soon approaching. I panicked a little and then remembered that my stuff was in the house, too and somehow things were going to be okay.
Tri-xiety…..I need more cowbell
