imagine. a really great post, with pictures even- because I actually took them, but have no energy to go find where I put down the camera. clothes, gear, snacks, race nutrition, bike, car distractions, teaching materials… I think it’s almost good to go. we leave bright and early and have decided today that an in-town race is much preferred to this whole travel business. the mr. has been stressed out. hopefully once we’re there and settled he’ll resume his normal calm. I’ve got cowbells and very annoying clapping devices, so the cheer squad is prepared. wish us safe travels, with no delays… we’ve got deadlines, you know. here’s to the most physically taxing 12 hours known to man. or, at least my man. St. George Ironman, here we come!
