Walk the run - or drop out?

That is the question. With the Greenville Sprint tri tomrrow morning at a crappy time of 0700. Due to my leg problems and possible stress fracture, I've decided pretty much to just stop after the bike. I've been going back and forth on weather or not to walk the run portion or just stop. And, well, I'm leaning more towards finish up with the bike. I just don't want to start the run walking it and all the spectators, motivators telling me "you can do it", "run it", when I can't run right now. I do have my running shoes packed though, so I will end up making my decision while riding.

My week went well with the workouts. I did at least an hour a day almost everyday except yesterday. I had a long day at work, working over, then we had dinner with our builder last night to talk about plans and such.

Today we had the pleasure of spending some time at our friends, Chris and Jennifer's house for a surprise Birthday party for Jennifer. It was a great time! Grace didn't want to leave at all.





We are soooo caught up in the Olympics! Just watched the ending to the Women's marathon. That lady just kept on running after she passed through the ribbon. I think I'd want to stop after 26 miles. Wow. Phelps is up next, and time for me to turn in.

Transition bags are packed, and bikes are at the door. We're ready for tomorrow!
Have a great remaining weekend, ya'll!

Thanks to all of you that gave me advice about the race. I appreciate it!
