Swim on course. Water is warm!

Good nights rest.  Good breakfast.  Feeling ready to rock!  Lori and I are going to swim around 10 a.m. or so, then a short ride, and then check in the bikes and transition bags.  WOOT!

Fun day.  Swim, pack, bike, eat!  Just had Lori cut my hair nice 'n' short.  Speedy Pete!

Now to chill for a couple hours and to bed early...

I'm feeling nice and relaxed.  It is going to be a warm day, getting over 80 degrees and no clouds.  This alone could slow the times down a little from 2007.  But, feeling good.  Expecting between 2-8 minutes slower on the swim, potential for bike in the 6-6:15 range, and potential for run in the 4:15 to 4:45 range.  That is, if things go great.  Going to take it all in and enjoy.

As I go to bed, my RACC fund raising total is $2,435.  Not going to check it again, but was really hoping to have it over $2,500 by the time the cannon goes off.  If you are in a position to give to help kids with cancer, please visit my fund raising page!

Easy peasy. Likely same effort that I'll put out on race day.

Ahhh...  Had a massage at lunch.  Fantastic!

Short bike and run tonight.

Okay.  Things are looking up.  Felt better yesterday afternoon, a bit worse in the evening, got a good nights sleep, and now feeling okay with only a little gut discomfort this morning.  Appetite is coming back too.  Woot.
Fuck. Me.

I'm sick.  Fine yesterday, at the wife's grandma's place on a lake a couple hours away.  In the car on the way home the tummy was not happy.  A bit of ice cream before bed helped.  But, woke up at 5:30 feeling pukey.  Got up, no pukey, but plenty from the other end.  It's almost noon and all I've had is a bottle of gatorade, a slice of toast, and half a Coke.  Feel tired and, what the fuck, where is all this number two coming from????

Don't know what it is.  Food poisoning?  Lori's grandma thought she was having side effects to some meds she is on.  Symptoms were headache (check), pukey and diahrrea (no and yes), and tired (check).  Did I get the flu or some crap?

I've been feeling confident the last week or two.  Now I am.  Freaking.  Out.

Glad it's a holiday today so I can just lounge all day.
