Race Recap - Blue Lake and the Battle of the Nerves

Took the plunge yesterday and put on my race face (grrrr!) at the Blue Lake Triathlon here in Portland, Oregon. I haven't competed since Mexico in I was nervous! Usually, I am about 50/50 full of nerves and excitement. This time the nerves took up a bit more real estate. I consider a race (or tough training session) a "win" if every time my body and brain say "whoa, slow down this hurts!" I immediately reply (sometimes out loud) "No way! I can go harder!" Regardless of results, time, place, whatever, if you can stay focused and lean into the work -- you've won. This is no easy task. I think I was feeling wary of how difficult this is to do when running on high for over an hour
