OMG!!!

When you tune in to NBC on Saturday, 5 pm EST, 4 pm CST, (and west coast I have no idea what time it will air) you will get to see the broadcast of the 2007 Ford Ironman 70.3 World Championship Race.

But this is the really interesting part that I just found out...

They are going to sneak peak the winners of the 2008 Ironman World Championship lottery!!! I am frickin' nervous. Why am I so darn nervous about this? I do have my name in the pot twice, but so do hundreds or better yet thousands of others. I have not put anything on my race calendar past the Switzerland 70.3 because I have always though, "What if I win that Kona slot? I am going to have to seriously train for that for 6 months and it is going to cost me a bundle." My husband might not be too happy that I would win a slot, but being on the slow side, this the only way that this chick is ever going to get to go to Kona unless I just stay in triathlon until I am as old as Sister Madonna Buder and pray really hard that the other fast chicks in my age group give up the sport sometime in their 50's and 60's.

So now I get to be good and nervous for the next 3 days...

Crap. Now I'm nervous for you!!! That would be super stellar for you to get a slot. Hmmm...maybe a Hawaiian vacation is on tap for October!

I hope you get picked. That would rock. I really think hubby would come around to your way of thinking. If not, you and I can go. Your hubby and my wife could hang out back here. Seems fair to me!! LOL
