PI ready

I think we're ready for Parris Island!! Do I sound excited? I know, No. I'm tired.

As we're sitting on the couch with the munchkin, I think we're packed mostly for our trip to Parris Island for the tri. We'll be taking off tomorrow around lunchtime to get down there, pick up race packets, and meet with the newest and greatest triathlon team at Applebees. David is thrilled with the team, and the upcoming season. I'm nervous and excited to do my 2nd tri.

I am ready for a rest day tomorrow, as should be. Today, we had temps in the low 70's and to me, it was hot. Or at least, the hotest day this year yet. When I went back to work, I kept getting weird looks from people cause my face was beat red!

Wed: Swim 550yds - 13:10
Thur: Easy Run 4 miles - 41:14 (10:19)
Strength training - 30 min

Good luck to Viv on her Half-relay this weekend! You're gonna do so wonderful!!!!!
To EVERYONE out there - Train smartly and/or Race hard!!!!

It's gonna rock like Def Leppard back when Joe Elliot wore Union Jack shorts on stage! I'm really looking forward to it, and I know you can't wait to see me in my skin suit.

WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait to hear about it, Mendy!!!!

I can't believe it jumped to the 70s there already! crazy! We have been in the 80s and the transition has been warm. Of course I know this is nothing compared to what is coming! I am thinking of doing some strength training tomorrow am...anything to get this darn fat off.

Geesh am I rambling or what?

ANYWAY, goooood luuuuuuuck this weekend!
