That's right...after 9 months of training it's finally almost here. Exactly one week from today the big race will be here. It feels like I've been studying for a big test and now I'm just anxious for it to get here. I've done everything I can for this race and hopefully those freezing cold early morning runs or trips to the pool will pay off.
After attending a wedding this weekend, we realized that training for the Ironman is way too similar to being pregnant. The specific training has lasted 9 months, I eat like I'm eating for 2 (only I'm eating for me and working out me...guess that can count as 2), I can't really drink (at least not super close to race day), and I go to bed super early (9pm = triathlete bed time). Anyways hopefully more posts to come this week and definitely a race report post race.
