So I'm strongly considering doing a local training race this Sunday: http://www.bostonroadclub.com/wellsave.asp
I have *never* raced before. I don't have a clue what the rules are, how best to warm up, what to expect in terms of pace, competition, or strategy.
Am I insane? Is this a bad idea? Or, is this a great idea, and I should just throw myself into it and see what happens?
Teach me! Quick!
