(oh my gould) !!! do you think i will ok or will i make a complete idiot of myself.. :huh: :embarrassed:

Welcome to the forum Maria. It sounds like you've been doing all the right things and I'm sure you'll be fine at a club. Best of luck.

Have you competed in any races yet? What kind of distances do you do in training?

Don't worry about joining a club, most people have fears about not being able to keep up or being the slowest there, I'm pretty sure you won't be. Joining a club was the best thing I ever did, motivation, encouragement, advice and company - not forgetting social activities are all the positives.
