Triathletes Outnumber Golfers in Augusta....

Three days. Tick. Tock. I saw this article today on the race. I had no idea Augusta was the world's largest half ironman with 3200 participants. Wow. I hope those 3,199 people don't get in between me and the food table at the finish. I think I might want something to eat right about then... I had heard there was a Mellow Mushroom Pizza at mile 12.4. Must resist temptation to stop and eat pizza :)

I have been obsessively checking the weather. At this point, I could probably get a job at The Weather Channel. Thankfully, the weather appears to be nice albeit a little hotter than what I would like but that is Augusta for you - hot and humid!

Good luck to everyone racing this weekend - hope to see you there!

I'm tempted to make a detour and head a little over to the right as I make my way thru GA. If anything, just for the pizza at mile 12.4 of the run and of course, to cheer all of you on!

Good luck to you. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the weather is perfect.

How exciting that it's almost race day! I can't imagine doing a tri - you're one strong athlete!

Hey Karen!

Sorry I won't be seeing you up at Augusta this weekend, but there is an envoy headed that way from my tri group. They are a fun bunch of ladies so if you spot a group having too much of a good time, it's them.

Good luck with this weekend. I am very excited to hear how it goes!!
