Today is the day

It is 2.5 hours before the canon goes off and I’m completely ready. I had a good night’s sleep. Well, mostly. It was a little restless, but for the most part it was a good one. We went to bed at 7pm, which I don’t think I’ve done since I was a kid, except when I was sick.

Today I plan to stick to my race plan and take it easy on the swim and bike, and walk up the hills and at the aid stations on the run. I hope to come in to the finish line within 15 hours and I hope to come in with a smile on my face and with my family standing proudly at the sideline. I feel very lucky to be able to take on this challenge and to be so close to completing it. Today I will be an Ironman.

    Great run to bring it home.
    Isn’t it nice to know no animals were harmed to become an Ironman.
