So the countdown has officially begun…. done with work for the day and next on my agenda is officially the race!!!
This morning I woke up at 5a to finish packing as I got home at 8:30 from the tri club meeting the night before and was not in the mood to start packing. I can’t believe I need ALL of this for the race… quite the change from just a running race:
I also put yankz in place of my shoe laces on my running shoes to help save time in transition so I don’t have to mess with tying my shoes:
After laying everything out, I put it all in my bag ready to be dropped off tonight at the truck. Then I got ready for work and prepared for the busiest day in clinic so far. Fortunately things went well and I was able to leave at 4:30….hooray!! So I rushed home, finished loading up the car and got the little guy in the car after convincing him that a ‘drive’ was the best thing ever. Of course as soon as he got to my parents he was a bundle of energy and already was having a blast. I’m sure the exploration of a backyard will keep him busy for the whole weekend 🙂
After dropping him off, I went to go drop off my bike and gear. Wow. I wasn’t expecting a full truck! The club is so darn freaking organized! I can’t go into details about how they had each bike rigged up, but they had things down to a tee and ready for all of the bikes. Amazing. I’m pretty lucky to belong to such a great club with such organized and enthusiastic members, honestly I never would have signed up for this race without their support and organization. Just to give you a peek, here’s a shot of the van with the bikes:
Later JMR met up with me to grab a quick dinner (yes, I know I’m not working out as much during the taper and carbs are not really needed, but…yeah. whatever).
So, I will head to bed on that note.
I have to get up at 4a so that we can meet everyone at the van at 5a….. I am nervous, excited, ….antsy…. ready to race!!
I’ll fill you in on after the race!! 😉
