Almost here, I can't believe it!



I don't expect you to watch all of it but this is what is kinda making me crap my pants. Yep, it's almost go time. The American Triple T, the race my year depends on, the only big race for me in 2010. I'm sure some incidentals will come along but this is the big one. No, I'm not having taper madness. As YOU know, I love the taper. Makes me feel like a normal person again. You know, the kind that cleans a house, runs errands, cooks a meal, goes out with non-tri friends, that kind of thing. It's good times. Now, I just keep running through everything in my head. What to pack, what to take.

For me, this is going to be a weird combination of a camping trip and triathlon...all.weekend.long. Yep, Friday-Sunday, race, race, race and then race again. I have no idea what to expect other than lactic acid and some killer hills. The kicker, me and Til have no sherpa for this race. We will have to take care of ourselves. WHAT?!?!?! Yep, Goofy and Goofier will have to take care of each other for this one. I will need to record some of the exhausted, sleep deprived conversations. I'm sure they will be priceless.

And for your viewing pleasure...some hilarity...

So does everyone talk like that when they are riding a bike?

My first thought is if the dude stopped talking, he would have caught the first rider sooner, and not gotten passed by the second.

My second thought is, I wonder what wild animals are learking in the woods?

Best of luck. You will be fine.

Hell with the first one.... your IRONMISSY!!! NO PROBLEM, a ride in the park (big park with hills)...
Now the second one... That gives new meaning to the phrase "Bitch slapped". She is there for one reason only... and that's it.

Skimmed the video. My first thought was that it looked like a cool place to run! All that lush green? Yeah, me likey. However, it does look like you're in for a workout there, girlie. I'm sure you'll kill it! Looking forward to hearing all about it!

This is going to be such an awesome experience ... can't wait to read all about it. You are going to have such a blast!

This cracked me up:

"Makes me feel like a normal person again. You know, the kind that cleans a house, runs errands, cooks a meal, goes out with non-tri friends, that kind of thing." ... none of that sounded real fun to me :-)

Amanda said...

Diana said...

That bike video was awesome, the last part he was just flying and coming into some of those sharp turns, ewwwwwww!

kristen said...

I like the part toward the end where he says, "appropriate ambulance placement". Holy shit!

This is badass, but so are you. You are going to dominate!

Blackdog said...

I have no idea what everyone is talking about. Did you see the DJ. He goes all Vince slap chop on that girls.. girls. I almost shot coffee out my nose.

Julie said...

Sherry said...

OMG... wow! You are so hardcore! That video scares the shyte out of me! Seriously! But, YOU are READY to tackle this beast!

Marit C-L said...

That looks amazing - you guys are going to have such a great time...incredible experience! I can't wait to hear all about it!!! You'll be fine... if past performance is an indicator what's going to happen in the future - you've ALWAYS gotten through, and done very well. Relax and enjoy (always easier said than done, I know).

Okay - that DJ was horrible! Gross old man. Dude - even one pat of my boobs and he would have been decked. Lights out. I can't believe the woman he did that to just STOOD there. Ugh. She is a disgrace to females the world over.

Looking forward to hearing how this Triple T event goes for you. Sounds like something fun & crazy that I might want to do some day too and I just saw there's one in NC which would be more convenient for me.

Hope a hunky sherpa (or two) might step up by race day!!

Judi said...
