Well, Aunt Flow did decide to tag along for my weekend of camping and racing, but I don't mind. As Speedy reminded me, it could be worse. At least my saddle isn't white.
I'm ready to go, and there's nothing left to do now but do it. Thank you all for your comments of encouragement. I'm sure I can do this, but having half a dozen people to tell me, "Yes you can!" sure doesn't hurt. I feel so lucky to be part of a vibrant online community.
I'm hoping to get the little brother updating Facebook and Twitter for me, so you can chart my progress there. Haven't been able to figure out how to track athletes from the Ironman website.
I'll report back on Monday!
