Today marks one month until the big day.
Let me say that again…ONE MONTH!
It’s no secret that I’ve had my fair share of ups and downs over the past 10 months, but now that we’re officially in the final stretch, it’s time to get down to business and more important, time to get excited!
Yesterday, when my fellow Oakley ambassador Lacey posted this video she made of the final hour at Kona this past week, I cried. I was so happy for everyone who crossed the finish line, the raw emotion and their amazing accomplishment. I couldn’t help but to imagine myself there come November 18th – cue more tears. Oh man, I’m going to be a mess at the finish.
I’m officially getting excited to get to Tempe and put it all on the line, but before then, I need to get through Saturday’s nine hour, triple brick workout. It’s time to dig deep, push hard, then get ready for taper. Because like some wise graphic designer on Pinterest once said, dreams don’t work unless you do.
When you’re approaching race day, what do you do to get pumped?
And a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to an amazing man, my triathlon Sherpa and the love of my life: happy birthday Chicken Face!
