Ready or not, here I come!  TTT weekend is here!

So I am not feeling as ready as I want to be, but I am going to go put my best foot forward regardless, if not for me, for my partner, Tim Edwards!  And yes, we have the same last name and even both with blond hair and blue eyes, but we are not related!  I am just fortunate enough to have him as a friend, who I have met through the wonderful Cleveland Triathlon Club network!

So TEAM EDWARDS will be in the house!  The fun thing about having a partner is that we can draft off each other on the bike the 3rd and 4th races and we are supposed to start and finish together!

Hopefully he does not give up on me waiting in T1 as I have no illusions that I can swim as fast as him!  Other than that I am thinking we should be pretty good partners on the bike and run...hopefully!

I am really excited about the weekend and there is a great group heading down from the Cleveland area and we will be sure to have some fun!  Even better, it looks like we are at last going to have a nice weather weekend, albeit perhaps on the warm side for racing!  I can hardly believe Sunshine is going to even make a guest appearance for the weekend (picture Daisy doing cartwheels)!

My main concern besides all the hills and pain that await, is mainly that freezing cold water to swim I know I am going to be swim in!  Janet=giant freeze baby!  Thank goodness I got a new fancy TYR Hurricane wetsuit to sport!  Whooot!

As Santa would do I have been making a list an checking it twice to make sure I don't forget anything this weekend!   First Endurance, check.  TriSlide, check.  Plenty of can-do attitude, check (  haha...ok but active always has that on the checklist and for some reason, it still make me smirk!)

Happy Thursday or Friday for me!!!!!

Just put your damn chip on!! Do NOT do any cartwheels until after the race. Get all hot and sweaty before hitting the water and then KILL IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
