This is it! Tomorrow I leave @ 5am for my Triathlon! Yes, I said 5am. They want you there early to make sure you fill out your will! Anyway, we are really doing this thing. Did a re-check on gear and everything is packed. The one part that is really gonna suck is that it is so early in the morning and I can't have any DD before the race, so as not to upset my stomach. This pisses me off. The anticipation is killing me. I am excited with a mixture of nerves. I am driving Bob nuts going checking and re-checking. Oh, did I mention Bob won't be able to make it? Yes ,he was called yesterday and was told he will be flying to Texas to go to the Final Four. I am going with two of my best girl-friends. Gail who I talked into doing this with me, and Maryanne who is our personal photographer (no, really she is a professional photographer, hey I know people!)They must love me to go anywhere with me at 5am without my coffee!!
Its amazing , its taken me all year to train and it will probably only take about 1-to 1& 1/2 hours to complete? I will then be going to the beach with the Legacy Ladies until Sunday Night-You will have to wait until Monday to
1.See how I finished
2.See if I drowned
3. See the pictures._
Whoo- Hoo I know the suspense is killing you!
Here is a little poem I wrote just for you!
'Twas the night before my Triathlon
I am nervous as hell,
The bike is in the car and my friends have wished me well.
I ate my fill of carbs tonight, and checked over the map,
I 've packed my goggles, helmet, my bathing suit and lucky cap!
I have biked and ran and swam now, for almost a year,
So I am really glad that this race is finally, here.
Please pray for me tomorrow, that I will survive
I just want to cross that finish line, partially alive!
By the time the sun comes up, I will be a Tri-athlete,
So I better go to bed now and get some much needed sleep!
