Here in Louisville, it is really hot! But...I'm too worried about my knee to worry about the temp. It still hurts--a lot!
Had a fast, safe trip here yesterday. The kids were great, the hotel rooms are great. We have adjoining rooms, and because my husband works for Marriott, got a great deal!
Swam in the river this morning--83 degrees. Even the water here is hot! Had a good swim, except that the water smells kind of funky, and my knee hurt!
Picked up my packet and went to the athlete briefing. Good info, not much I didn't already know. Met a girl who is doing her first ironman....and second triathlon! WOW--either very brave or very stu......well, you know!
Have all my nutrition/hydration planned. Hope it works. My husband took my son out this afternoon. Told me to just take it easy and finish the race--it's going to be really hot! Well, I can only do what I can do!
Took Peanut to the pool for an hour or so. She swam, I read/napped. Going to hang out at the hotel tonight. Bring something back to eat. Low key. Had a good sleep last night. Hope for a good one again tonight because tomorrow night......
Bring bike and bags to the transition tomorrow. Short trip to the expo, then back to the hotel. It's so close, I can't believe it.
The next time I write, Lord willing, I'll be through this. I have so much respect to all of you who have done this before--and many, multiple times. I'll let you know if this will ever happen again for me maybe next week--or month?!
Have a great weekend. Pray for all the racers, and me this weekend.
Until next time--God bless!
