Well, I've been off the grid since Florida 70.3 but figured I'd write some thoughts down as I get close to Eagleman (4 days). I'm feeling good, although nervous...very nervous. I've once again got big goals for myself. Whether or not I can get there remains to be seen. I never know until race day, but I'm feeling good. I'm pretty sure I've never come close to the amount of bike training I've done leading up to this race. I raced well (for me) at Florida and I'm really hoping to carry that over to Eagleman. No hills to crush me, so let's hope the wind stays down and the heat isn't too bad...and that the water is under 76.1! Shooting for a 4:45. Going to have to give it everything I've got, but I KNOW I can do it if I'm smart and mentally tough. 4:45 is my big goal and hitting it would be epic. But at the minimum, a PR is what I'm after. As long as I can avoid mechanical mishaps and don't absolute crush myself on the bike, there's no reason that shouldn't happen. We'll see what happens on Sunday, but I'm feeling nervous, but GOOD! A few more workouts and then it's go time! RocktheW!
