2 Days Out

We (my mom, sister and I) arrived in PCB Wednesday night. I slept late and then went for a run around 8 a.m. 3.1 miles with 90 second pickups. The weather is fantastic. The ocean is calm and clear. I got checked in for the race today and bought a few things at the expo. I attended the welcome dinner and mandatory athlete meeting tonight. I'm going to the Gatorade Swim @7 a.m. in the morning with Missy and Jerry.

The time is near. I am excited, but calm. J.T. and the boys, my dad, aunts and uncles, Bigun and Di, Jill and her crew all arrive tomorrow.

I feel confident and happy.

I may or not have a chance to blog tomorrow for the final time. If I don't - think iron thoughts for me, and I'll see you on the other side...as an Ironman, baby.
