Murphy's Blogging Law -- Post it, and it will change


Change of plans. Sorry!

I'm not going to be armed with a sharpie after all. I'M SO BUMMED!

It's my own damned fault, since I didn't shore up my travel plans early enough or bother to do the very important math equation of what time I would need to leave in order to make it to the race that early if I didn't make plans to stay somewhere closer.

And, yes, I did get a 5 on my math AP. And, no, I clearly didn't take those lessons with me.

Erg. Cannot leave the house at 2 am and expect to make it through the day in one piece. No friend/family/stranger housing within 1 hour drive. I'm an idiot.

SO, I am scurrying down there early enough to see my peep, D, hit the water along with everyone else. And I will have IM ABLE written on my legs. And I will scream for you if I find you in the crowd until I'm hoarse or asked to leave, whichever comes first.

And I will be catching at the finish line for as long as they will let me. So I have every intention of seeing each person I know out there cross in a healthy, albeit sweaty, way.

By the way, I'm stupid excited for everyone. It's going to be hot. I know, I know. But you guys are triathletes and you know how to manage heat. Just stay smart out there, keep your core temps down, and race your own race.

Kona Shelly is staying with a local family, an arrangement she made through the race. Apparently it is a service they offer. Probably too late to book it now but next time you should check it out.

Please keep an eye out for our, I think, lone TriGirl. She should be sporting her pink race top. Shout "GO TRIGIRL!" Oh, and our Richmond TriClub guys too, sporting blue/white uniforms. Have fun, stay cool, and enjoy the race!

Water on the head every 30-45 min on the bike still didn't help... enough, that is. Oh well.
