Where have I been anyway?
Well. I guess I needed a break.
A lot of new things happened all at once and my way of dealing with it was dropping a few things. The blog (and training) were two of them.
I miss writing, reading your blogs, and most of all I miss training hard. It is harder for me to blog now that I don’t really have a computer to do it from…actually, I am able to read blogs, but not able to comment, which doesn’t really lead to a lot of that interaction that I so love.
Anyway. Enough of that crap. Let’s move on.
I have had quite a summer. I have been spending a little more time on the river…
A lot more time with friends…
And of course, quality time with Porter…
AND Training…not so much.
Which turns out to be a problem when you have this bitch staring you down…
….wait for it….
4 freaking days.
That came up a lot quicker than I thought it would.
I am really only going to see these guys & gals:
…just to name a few (I mean, show a few…cause I am too lazy to hyperlink)!!!
But I figure, since I am there, and since I paid the entry fee, I might as well start the race…
And I have a plan.
A very…very…um…simple (aka idiotic)…plan.
1) Start the swim (that is the most exciting part anyway), finish the swim before they kick me off the course.
2) Get on the bike.
3) See what happens.
Yup. Talk about winging it.
What the hell, right? Might as well give it a go.
If I actually make the bike cutoff (this is questionable), I will start running walking (let’s be honest here) and go until they kick me off the course or until I hobble across the finish line.
If I don’t make the bike cut off, I am going to rack my bike and start drinking/cheering…
It seems pretty win-win. I either get a good swim and ride in and then hang with some awesome people, or I finish another Ironman and get to hang with awesome people.
I will post again once I get there on Thursday!
