Thirded, fourthed, fifthed, etc.
There's a meet in Lexington in February I'll be doing. Come do that one since you live here too. You won't be competitive in your first meet if there's any quality competition, so there's no need to worry about it.
My first meet after knee surgery was a push/pull where I ended up benching 370 and deadlifting 530 with a knee wrap on my bad knee. My numbers sucked and I bombed the 400 bench I was looking for twice...which made me train like a maniac for 5 months and put 40 pounds on each the next time out.
Like reed said, screw everyone else. Go out and get better every time.
