…One week until my 70.3. Freak out time!!!
To say I am nervous is an understatement. I am mostly prepared. Ok, I am not really prepared AT ALL. Mel Tall-Mom texted me today:
She’s so good at gently nudging me, reminding me to not wait until the last minute (and yes, a week out is NOT last minute for me)! Especially since I may have to order some things online.
There is actually a 70.3 happening tomorrow, the same race and the same course. They have it two weekends in a row. So I am going to watch it with my Triple Threat girls tomorrow so we can check it out. You better believe I will be seeing what they are wearing. I have an idea of what I will be wearing but I am not certain.
I stopped by Hawley’s Bike Shop the other day and got my hydration system, a bottle with straws that I can drink from while in the aero position. The Hubs was a champ and put it together for me! I am super excited to have this. It will be the difference in life/death, make or break, for me. Hydration is so important, especially when you are riding 56 miles in the sun. Now at least I can check this off my worry list.
And Lindsey from 70.3 or Bust sent me an awesome care package last week! I was so excited! I continue to be reminded just how amazing the blogging community is and how we all are a huge network of friends who just happen to live far apart. You should check out her blog for a truly awesome story about a friendship created online!
Not long ago I realized I needed new shoes. Ugh. I was wearing the same digs I wore during the Portland Marathon 10/10/10. So that means I was wearing them before the marathon…They have roughly 400 miles on them. They are still good for the occasional run in the rain but new shoes were a must. I am going outside my box and trying something new, Saucony ProGrid Mirage! So far so good! Look for a review at the end of the month!
And while getting this post together I got another text from Tall Mom:
Great. Let me put THAT on my list of things to consider: Fungus. HA!
So Tri-ers out there, what else do I need to consider? Fungus? Give me some tips and insight!
Oh yeah AND if you are doing RnR Seattle, and I know a ton of you are and mentioned it in your comments on my last post, either email me or Mel-Tall Mom and let us know if you want to join us for the Epic PNW Blogger and Friends Convention!! Trust me, it will be amazing!!!See you in 7.1 weeks!!
Happy Friday everyone!!
