I'm starting to hyperventilate about Ironman Texas.
Not because of the training.
Not because of the fact I'm going to be going powering my body through 140.6 miles in crazy Texas heat and humidity.
Because, reports are coming in that there are snakes, freaking everywhere. I won't even post a picture of one, because I HATE them so much. I don't even buy anything that has a snakeskin print on it. If one shows up on TV, the channel is changed.
Here's a couple of quotes from the Beginner Triathlete thread:
"I usually see dead snakes on the course, but yesterday I almost ran over 3 live ones. Two just scared me, but the third scared the **** out of me and I almost broke my cleat trying to get my leg away from it. It jumped back, but it was a coral snake and I know they have some serious venom. "
"I saw 3 snakes on my run today. One was dead, one was alive and small, and the other was about a 2 foot long moccasin and I did not get close enough to see if it was alive. "
I will be situating myself in the middle and will take what beatings may come, because if I see a freaking snake in the water, I'm likely to lose it.
Need.. a... brown paper bag...NOW!
