5 Days Until My Race!

It's 5 days until I get my rematch with Ironman Branson 70.3. I am in the middle of my taper (which I hate), but I am seriously calm about this. I know I can do it. I might not finish as fast as some, but I can do it. I do not fear the swim, it will be the easiest part for me. I am concerned about the bike, just because I know it will be tough, it will be a challenge, but I am capable of doing it.

My biggest concern is my nutrition and getting to the run. I have my plan for the run, but I know that if I go to hard on the bike, then I am done before I get to the run.

I am not going to tell you my goal time for this race, but I am approaching it as it being My Race, with just a lot of other people running it. I am not going to worry about my pace or speed other than whether or not I am in a comfortable pace. This race is about finishing, and finishing strong.

Bring it Branson!


  1. Enjoy your reward for all your hard work

  2. The weather looks like it will be much cooler this year. Can't wait to hear about your race!

  3. If it's a cool day, keep an eye on your bike metrics. Easy to go too hard on a day like that. In addition to the race day adrenaline.

    Go man go!
