Thanks

Ironman is a long way but I don't think it is in this girl to ever give up.

As anxious as I was last week I am every bit excited now. Some people feel the weight of the world on their shoulders....not me. I feel like the pull of the earth is pulling for me. I have had numerous good luck messages and words of encouragement.
I want everyone to know I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Your well wishes matter. If/when things get a little tough out there I'm going to remember there are a lot of people who took the time to care and I'm going to dig a little deeper.
I'm pretty prepared right now. For a type B person .....I bumped up to a B+ by packing most of my gear already, duck taping lists of the contents to the outside and making a list of the things I needed to pack still. Last night Tim race prepped my bike. In an hour I will meet Tim for a 15 mile test ride on Fiesta Island. After that we will pack our bikes.
This morning I received the final good luck touch... I met my friend Stacy for coffee and she gave me the ultimate "idropboys.com" power pack, complete with hello kitty pink band aids. Nothing can stop me now.

Kick some ass girl! I know you'll do great. I can't wait to follow your progress this weekend, and I can't wait to hear all about it.

Drop lots of boys for me!

Ohhh yes there will be SO many boys dropped!! I can't say enough GOOD LUCK GOOD LUCK GOOD LUCK, but I know you won't need it :). Most importantly, have SO much fun out there. The prep is done - just enjoy it! Even if it is a tad bit chilly during the swim...never let the small stuff get in the way of your goals. I remember during the run, thinking "WOW, I am DOING this, and I am going to FINISH". It was pure exhiliration and made me feel like nothing could stop me.

All your velo bellas will be thinking of you the entire day! Ahh, this is so exciting!!! Safe travels!
