I know I say this every month, but where did last month go? Time is flying by.  I am so happy it is almost summer.  Wednesday is the kid's last day of school.  Thursday morning we head to Boise and start our summer!!

May, just like April, was a blur.  I did accomplish my goals, kind of. Pnut and Little Dude are still alive, and I trained.  I didn't get every one of my workouts it, but I did the best I could do.  And I really feel ready for this race.

I'm starting to freak out a little about the heat.  It's going to be in the 80's, and the race starts at noon.  So I'll probably be running during the hottest part of the day.  I'm trying to remain calm.  There is nothing I can do about the weather.  All I can do is be as prepared as possible. That's what I'm trying to do.  That, and checking the weather every couple hours.

Hopefully the heat will have warmed up the reservoir.  Last I heard it was still in the 50's.  Can you imagine standing around, in a full wetsuit, waiting for your wave, when it is 80 degrees outside??  I'm sweating just thinking about it.  Speaking of wetsuits, I still can not figure out the best way to get in and out of one. It is exhausting and probably a pretty good laugh for those around me. Mine looks like this :)
Found this at They have a bunch of awkward wetsuit photos :)

All in all, I'm crazy excited about this weekend.   I really think this is going to be a great race for me.  I feel more prepared than I have been for any other race.  Cross your fingers and think cool thoughts!!


  1. YAY!!! The one thing we can't control is the stupid weather - but you are more than prepared, you can handle whatever is thrown at you and will be great!! Can't wait to hear about it once you check out the scene. SUPER excited for you!!

  2. Yahoo!!! Race weekend!! You are so ready! I really want to see you in that wetsuit.

  3. Oh, I can't believe it is here! You got this. I just know you are more than ready! I can't help you on the wet suit but I am sure it will all be good! Can't wait to read all about it!
