2 Days Until Eagleman -- Taper Hell

Nancy Toby is a local girl. So I hope she really knows what she's talking about when she says it is going to be 78 -82 degrees (depending on the source) during the Eagleman and only 3-5 MPH winds! Not that I'm counting on it...but just praying!

She did send me comment hinting at deer flies on the bike at Eagleman -- and guess what? The very next day at West Creek I was plagued by them on the bike and the run! I have NEVER seen any kind of flies out at West Creek until Tuesday, so go figure!

Mr. Preschool says that recently I've been exceptionally anxious (read bitchy)... and taking it all out on him. I don't know what he's talking about. I'm perfectly fine. Just flippin out at the thought of what have I gotten myself into! AND I just got a little upset when he said he was going to bring his bike and go on his own little adventure while I did my 1/2 IM.

He has supported me a hell of a lot by picking up the slack at home and watching the kids...and he'll be driving me home from the race....but still, that wasn't exactly what I had in mind when I asked him to come. I told him I was happy he was bringing a back up bike thought in case mine looses a major part or something! That is rational too, right?

The saga continues....Man, If I could just go run and bike for a couple hours, I think I'd be O.K.

think of the deer flies as your little entrouage cheering you along. and tell john that for all th hard work he put in to allow you this new challenge, to treat himself by drinking a beer at the tailgate tent (then he's not out on the bike!)if he gets bored - give him my number and he canmeet up with all of us sherpas! SO proud of you, j! xoxoxo

The forecast from for Cambridge is holding steady - almost no wind!! Now we're going to want it on the run, because we'll be baking, but on the swim and bike it will be fabulous not to have wind on that course!! *fingers crossed*

Cautiously optimistic. Somebody owes us one for last week's hurricane.

I've been feeling a bit out of sorts myself - and sounds like others are, too! Glad we'll be spending some time together pre-race to get that supportive energy going!

That weather forecast sounds like a dream for Eagleman....I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
