I'm staying with family in Marlboro, NJ and will be racing tomorrow in the New Jersey State triathlon.  The race is our last tune-up before Timberman and features a flat and fast course.  We picked up our packets today and all signs point to a  well-organized race but crowded race (the field is huge at somewhere near 3,000 participants).

My overall goal for the day is to race strong (and safely) and I've got an idea of the times I'd like to see myself put up.  The race is perfectly timed to get a gauge of where I'm at for Timberman and I have enough time to race and recover before next month.

Tomorrow will be an early morning so some rest is in order.  It's time for my meditation iPhone app and some tranquil rest to prepare me for tomorrow's Olympic Tri.
