Race tomorrow!

The training is done.  The taper is done.  Now it's time for bed and to wake up and race the longest distance I've done yet.


Have fun
Stay calm
Pace well
Don't let things that are out of my control get to me
Make cut off times and finish

If you are interested in tracking me on course, it should be possible with  I am bib number 529.  There is also an iphone app, though I have no idea how well it works.

If you're going to be on the course, expect me to be near the back of the pack.  I am going off in the newbie wave, which goes last at 7:45, and my times will mean I'm one of the later finishers.  I am really looking forward to seeing some of the people I know will be out there, mostly on the run course.  I'm sure I'll need the boost by that time!

Although I don't have time goals (other then making the cutoffs), if I were to guess, I'd estimate my times will be in the area of:

Swim: 51 minutes
T1: 5 minutes
Bike 3:45
T2: 3 minutes
Run: 2:30

I'll let you do the math if you're going to be out there.  All of those times could change anyways, so doesn't mean much!  Above all, I'll be crossing that finish line by 3:45!
