achieve the impossible....
I found this jacket in my favourite triathlon store and I had to have it. It's my pre-reward for Ironman Muskoka 70.3 and my motto during the race.
Final pre-race thoughts?
1. Stay calm. I am a bundle of nervous emotional energy. I just feel very excited and priveledged to do this! Hubs is very patient when I move from self-doubt to tears to excited energy (well I'm not that bad, but close)
2. I am setting no goals except to finish this one. I want to enjoy the event. It will be enough just to finish. I think it will take over 7 hours for me to complete this, but if it takes more, so be it.
3. Embrace the hills. The bike and run course are hilly. So I ***love*** hills. Repeat. I ***love*** hills.
4. Thanks for all the support. When I got into this triathlon beezznuss I had no idea how much time, energy, and money it would take to train for this race. Thanks to all of my friends (both virtual and not) who gave me support, words of encouragement. Ofcourse special thanks to Hubs who always supports everything I do 100%.
I promise to catch up on blogs soon. This week was also the first week back to work (school), so it was a busy one.
So its off I go. I am staying at a friends cottage who lives near the event, and our group is all doing the event, so it should be good to calm these crazy nerves of mine.
Thanks for reading and good luck to all those other racers this weekend!!
