West Virginia...I'm coming home...

Well, that's one for the books.

Mighty M and I just got home from the trip and I am (finally) freshly showered and ready to fall into bed.

So just some quick thoughts.

(1) Respect the distance.

(2) Nutrition done well will help you almost as much as training.

(3) Seriously, respect the distance.

(4) Sunscreen would have been the bestest of ideas,

and

(5) M is the most amazing person and boyfriend in the world -- a title he will hold along with begin the best sherpa to my triathlon fantasies. No way would I have finished without him, and it's possible I never would have started.

Guys, I'm cooked and in great need of bed before a full day at work tomorrow. But just so you know, I left everything I had out there on that course. Every little bit of myself. And I finished.

And that makes it all worth it.
