So Exciting!


Can I just say how exciting it is to be here in Wilmington NC for the Beach2Battleship Full Distance Triathlon!  It's been one long year of training and I'm ready!  I'm keeping this blog somewhat short...as I've got lots of things to do including getting some rest.

To all my peeps out there, here is how you can track me on race day (Saturday Nov 7):

Web Browser and iPhones:

Handheld PDA/Blackberry/Palm:

*Certain versions of the blackberry browser do not work.

Just so you all know, I am not allowed to wear this GPS System in the water or bad things might happen to the thing.  Bottom line, you can start tracking me once I get into transition and onto the bike course.  The race starts at 7 am (Eastern Time). You can do the math on what my swim time turns out to be but it better be less than the cut off time (see below).

Race Start: 7:00 am
Swim Cut Off: 2 hours 20 minutes (9:20 am)
Bike Cut Off: 10 hours 15 minutes (5:15 pm) (From the start of the race)
Run/Race Cut Off: 17 hours 00 minutes (12:00 am) (From the start of the race)

I'm not going to give you any indication on what I think my times will be...sorry don't want to jinx myself nor do I want to put any undue pressure on myself as well.  Remember, my goal is to have fun and to finish vertical and smiling.

Predicted Weather:

High 64  Low 45, Sunny, 0% of Precipitation, E at 5 mph wind

Check the forecast out!  Can you say YEAH for the Sun and very little wind!  Awesome!  It might be a little chilly in the morning and the evening...but I'll take it!  I've done so much cold weather riding/running this year, 45-64 degrees doesn't bother me at all.  I am loving the fact that it will be sunny and dry!

Keep the good vibes coming...me and Waddler appreciate every little sentiment!

Time to rest so I can splash, pedal and dash big time on Saturday!

P.s. I'm sure Waddler will post her tracking number on her blog as well... keep an eye out for it.
