Harvest Moon 70.3 – Obligatory Pre Race Post about Goals

  1. Finish.
  2. Don’t cry.

I signed up for this race eight months ago, on January 2nd. Thanks a lot, Past Mel. Doing a Half Ironman to celebrate turning 30 seemed like a good idea at the time.

Now it’s here (on Sunday). I had to abandon my carefully crafted training plan in favor of a Just-swim-bike-or-run-whenever-you-have-a-spare-moment strategy. I honestly think I might feel awesome and putter along, crossing the finish line smiling. I also might have a meltdown (mechanical or emotional) on the side of the road during the bike.

Stay tuned.
