62 Hours To Go...

I finished my last "big" workout before the triathlon this morning. It felt good, and I couldn't believe how long I ran before I needed to walk. I think I'm ready for the race, well, ready as I can be three days before!

Everyone around me thinks I'm crazy to be trying to do this. I'm okay with that because I'm doing it for ME, not for anyone else. I want to be proud of my body, even if I'm carrying around a little lot of excess weight. I want to follow through with something from beginning to end. I don't think I've followed through on anything, except my wedding, since college. In my twisted mind, this race is more than a race...If I can do this, I can do anything I set my mind to.

Friday will be weigh in day. I haven't been on a scale for about a month, and I haven't taken any measurements for about six weeks. Something must be working, as I'm fitting into pants that were too tight 2 months ago. We'll see.

I just wish the start time on Saturday wasn't 7 AM!
