RACE WEEKEND.

Well, this is the race I'm doing this weekend with Shelley. The weather looks to be ideal!

I didn't think about this race much, until I read through the course info. Then I started getting a little apprehensive. It sounds like the run will be tough. I don't figure the bike course will be any harder than the Reeds Lake race, but the run? Hmm. Not sure yet.

And I am a little confused about something. First they say it will be a "gender specific" race, and then they say they will start "both races" at 9 am, so I think that means the men's swim and the duathlon, but don't know for sure! If that's the case, I may stick with the duathlon, which is what I signed up for in the first place. (I figured if it was as cold on race day as it was the day I registered, no way would I want to get in the water!)

Actually, I guess if they say its a gender specific race, the men's tri/du starts at 9, and the women's starts at 10. Either way, I am sure to be the last person to finish.

After the race, they will have a barbeque. Shelley, save me some food!

good luck this weekend! I hope you have fun!

Thanks for the photos links. It is funny looking through those seeing that there were people out there from some of the Ohio races I did early in the year.

You will NOT be last...this is your new mantra to say during the race! Good luck and have fun! Hi to Shelly!

Living where we go straight from summer to something approximating winter, I think I'd be game for anything called Autumn Colors!

Have fun, 'cause that's what it's all about!

Autmn colors...will you see trees changing this early? If so, that will be pretty!!

oh, and in case that seemed like a stupid question, please remember that it's still warm here and when our few trees change, they are all the same color!! So I've forgotten when leaves change...and I'm totally envious of those who get to enjoy the autumn colors.

What do they call the last person in a race? A FINISHER.

my favorite comment from anyone ever ... yours: if you don't run scared, you'll stop trying.

so mine to you - while not nearly as profound:

if you think that BBQ is going to be gone, you'll run faster!

can't wait to read your race report. i just posted a doozy myself. am sure you beat this pr too!
