10 days and a WAKE-UP

Kona is right around the corner… WOW! The hard part of training is behind me, the core diet has once again worked like a charm, and now all I have to do is show up on race day!

QT2 pre race press for Molly, Pat and me…


The past week and a half has been brutal following the strict diet, but it worked and I officially resemble Skeletor. I often wonder if that is a good thing or a bad thing. Good for race, bad for the looks ;) My foot is doing great and my running is back on track. My swim hasn’t changed much, but that is a work in progress for me. The bike… ahhhh the good old bike. All I need to remember is to hit my watts right out of the gate, as there is not time to play catch up in the end. FOCUS… FOCUS…FOCUS… eyes on the SRM!

Fear does not exist in this dojo, does it? NO, SENSEI!
Pain does not exist in this dojo, does it? NO, SENSEI!

Got to love the Karate Kid :) The infamous bike scene…


OK… enough with my Karate Kid obsession :)

I am headed out this Sunday for the SUPERBOWL of triathlons. To sum it up, I am excited and just a tad bit anxious. I had my share of speed bumps this season. I did manage to stay on track and keep trekking along, but to be honest, I had my breaking points at times. Sacrifice has been my middle name for the past several months, but I am confident it will pay off and I will have another amazing story to share. Many thanks to all of you that have supported me along the way- XXXXXXXXX (many hugs)!

My next post will be from the BIG ISLAND of KONA! Don’t forget to check out the race day coverage at www.ironman.com.
