Tomorrow is the big day. Still excited, not all that nervous. My official fan and photographer bailed on me so am not sure how many photos I will get of the event. A little disappointing not to have a cheering section but I can't blame him. I have to be at Lake Lanier by 6:30 which means leaving the house around 5:45. All of that amounts to a lot of standing around for the spectators since the event doesn't start until 8:00.
Today is a day of rest. I was up entirely too late last night so the plan is to come home straight from work, figure out what I need to bring with me, pack it up and get to bed early, early, early.
The official distances for this event are a 500m swim, 12 miles bike and 3 mile run. I am pretty confident I can do it under 2 hours - hopefully better - just not sure of the timing on the bike leg.
**update since this morning... my packing for the big day didn't really go as planned. As it turns out, in a cleaning frenzy someone who shall remain nameless threw away my wetsuit along with a variety of other snorkeling and scuba gear. Luckily it has been 95 degrees here the past couple of days and I probably didn't need the wetsuit anyhow so I guess that helped make my decision about whether or not to wear it. I think I have everything together now, just need to load the car.
My photographer and cheering section has decided to attend the festivities after all so YAY on that front!
