Collegiate Nationals

I'm off to Collegiate Nationals Triathlon and I don't know if I'll have internet access before Sunday. The race is the biggest I've ever done, both in terms of distance and number of participants. There will be 1,000 student athletes representing their schools over the course of an olympic distance triathlon which is:
swim 1500m (a mile is 1609m)
bike 40km (about 25 miles)
run 10k (about 6.2 miles)

Wish me luck. The race starts Saturday at 7am (but I start at 7:32 because the swim goes in waves & I'm a slow swimmer). My original goal (last semester) was to finish in about 2 hours and 15 minutes. Since breaking my wrists and not training so hard because of school work etc., I've decided that I'll be happy if I break 2:30.
