Nutshell Notes..

SunNov 23
Partly Cloudy
74°47°
0% chance of rain.

There it is..the first forecast for race day.

My number is 2611. I am trying to find out some signifigance to this number but haven't done so yet. H's number is 2005. We can be followed on raceday on Ironman.com by clicking on "athlete tracker" for IMAZ.

3.5 hour bike ride today, 40 min slow run, 200o yd swim. Our last "long" workout before IMAZ.

Taper agitation has set in..H and I have not killed each other yet.. :)

Hadley not here, Mom Bea still holding steady..

That is it in a nutshell..my world is in a nutshell right now..

What a fabulous forecast. I will keep my fingers crossed for no wind.

2,000 yards in the water, 40 minutes of running and 50 miles on the bike doesn't really sound like a taper but I'll take your word for it. If that felt easy then you are more than ready!

That is it! My sisters birthday Europian style-26/11.

Thanks Tania! Now I know she will be there with me..
(I am also secretly hoping Hadley is born on her BD too).

The excitement is building.

I will be cheering you on from the Midwest. Several friends are heading your way hoping for the forecast to hold.

The significance of the number is that it's yours! :D Best, best, best of luck to you and H!! Race hard, be safe, enjoy the heck out of your accomplishment. I'll be thinking of y'all on Sunday (even though I won't likely have access to a computer this weekend.) Oh - and a little extra joy for that baby's arrival - whenever she chooses to make it!
