I have one last little deposit to make into my Ironman account today and then I am going to cash out on Sunday. I have been putting in the work all year/season long and I am ready. Well, as ready as I will ever be. I have overcome intestinal parasites, bike crashes, and myself to get ready for this. Does my race number mean that I will clean up on course while I am out there? Who knows for sure.
I pick up my bike at the shop today and I want to finish my packing up tomorrow. I pick Johnny Tri up from the airport on Thursday and we leave for Cozumel on Friday morning. From the time we step off the plane we have packet pick up, race meetings, athlete dinner, bike rebuilding, and if we can fit it in, a small swim. Saturday is bike and gear bag drop off and get off the feet. Sunday we are up at 3:45 to get breakfast and to get to the shuttle that starts running at 5:00am to take us to Chakanab Park for the start.
My race number is 409 if you have nothing better to do on Sunday and want to check in and see if I will make the cut off by midnight. Keep me in your prayers that I have an uneventful race.
