Wednesday
OFF

Of course now the time is just flying by....feeling pretty anxious here and can't wait to finally hear that cannon go off so we can get this party started. The shoulder continues to feel better on a daily basis.....the legs are coming around. I've pretty much shut it down at this point. I was planning to get in a quick bike /run today but skipped it since I hadn't even started packing yet.....

I hate packing.....

Well better get back at it.....finish packing, get in a quick bike / run in the am tomorrow, and catch the Max Light Rail to the airport. Pretty cool that we can catch a train that runs right into the terminal at the airport.

Any positive vibes, well wishes, prayers, etc very much appreciated for this Sunday. The weather gods are forecasting an increase in temps from the low 80's right up to a blistering 91 degrees for race day in Penticton. Ouch! Not the best prep fore me this year but I plan on giving 100% effort regardless of how I feel during the race....stay focused......breathe deep...and BELIEVE.....

*Peace*

GOOD LUCK MIKE! Heat or not, I'm sure you're going to rip up the course. Being an IM vet, you know well what to expect. You might have a harder time with the heat, but you have experience on your side.

Race hard and race smart! And kick butt! :)
