Going to the OC..

Orange County Florida..that is. Ironman Florida 70.3 is this weekend. And I'm actually getting pretty freaking excited about it. Hopefully, if I don't pass out from heat stroke on the run, I'll be able to get under 6 hours. If I race smart I think I might be able to make it. The swim should be nice a flat (umm..since it's in a lake) - but I'm really going to focus cutting 15 min off of the bike and 5 min off of the run working to hopefully come out with a 5:XX finish time! That would be awesome.

Anyway - Karen and her husband Jim are heading down from Atlanta to stay/race with us and Lisa W (one of the three buff bitches from last weekend)will be racing as well. And Jason will be on the sidelines cheering us on. This will be his first triathlon experience - and I think it's going to be a good one.

Other then triathlon business - next weekend I'm heading to St. Louis to see a TON of family and friends. One of my best friends from Kansas City is heading over to hang out as well. Here is an old school picture of us...drunk...and one of our fav college bars. Ohhh..the trouble we used to get into.


Good luck to everyone else who is racing this weekend!!!

If you figure out the secret to going sub 6:00, you have to let me know.

I've got 3 weeks to cram and create a plan to get me there!

You'll be starting while I'm still in bed, but that's ok, I'll cheer you on, in a horizontal, sleepy sort of way. By the time you're finishing, I'll be training on the Calgary 70.3 course with some blog buddies. If I have any energy, I'll cheer you on some more. I'm looking forward to seeing the exact numbers in the 5:XX. Have a great time!

Good luck! You can totally sub-6! Just drink lots (not beer--until after the race, LOL!) and have fun!

Bill said...

I know it goes without saying with you, but have fun. Best of luck with your time goals.
