New Orleans is a knocking!
So you see that little ticker on the right hand side? Do you see how the days are dwindling away? I remember when it said like 180 days! But New Orleans is this Sunday and I'm SUPER pumped for it. This will be my first 1/2 IM, and I know not my last. We have such a huge group heading to the Big Easy to race which just adds to the excitement! Not to mention a bunch of other bloggers who I can't WAIT to have a drink (or many) with!! ( Amy, Melissa) Most likely on Monday I'll be signing up for Augusta and hopefully St. George for 2010! I was pondering the though of Kansas, but, Augusta is a much closer drive :)
***Ok - I just looked at my ticker. It says 35 days or something like that. Hmm... Anyway, the race is SUNDAY! 5 freaking days away!!*****
Tapering. Tapering makes me feel like a big fat lazy slug. The extra time can drive me nuts! But, thankfully I have my parents here to help out!! Sunday I got in around a 5 mile run, yesterday rocked out about 3000 in the pool and today I plan to jump on the trainer since it's suppose to rain. Rain. Ugh. I'm SOOO sick of it. But somehow, with the time off tapering and my parents being in town, more wine then usual has been consumed!!
Tonight one of my all time favorite bands is playing outside at Seaside! Dikki Du Zydeco Krewe is out of New Orleans and just jams out. One of those bands where NO ONE is sitting still. Check out some of their music - I know you'll be shaking your ass in your set!
New racing outfit! Whoowhoo! I'll post some pictures soon!
