And one more day bites the dust...

Started the day with a swim. Went down with Paulo, Jonathan, Mom, and Dad to the swim and met Tom Evans (multiple Ironman winner and one of the favorites to win the race- Go TOM!)

Here is Jonathan and Tom messing around before the swim:

The three of us:

Me and Paulo:


Then Miranda arrived! The crew is complete!

Miranda and sad Jonny:

At the banquet. Now I'm getting nervous!

The crew after the dinner:

What a cool sunset!


Jonny was hungry after the dinner, so we went to get him some dessert...


I DNF'ed my portion...


And now I need to GET TO SLEEP!

Talk tomorrow!

:-)

You are most kind to us with all these pix and stories - probably good to keep your mind off the race - LOL!! Thanks for the updates - wish I was there with you guys!! I miss the crew. And even the bad face of Paulo in the morning - what a classic on ST!!

OK, girl this is it!! Have a fabulous day. The best bit of advice I received was to enjoy every minute -- you will never again have a FIRST Ironman race. So every one (or one hundred) after tomorrow will be compared to this one day. Take it all in, smile a lot, and get the crowd cheering -- you won't regret a minute of it! I can't wait to hear your report.

We'll be cheering you on from Cleveland. Think of us when you need a little boost :-)

p.s. Tom led the entire Lake Placid bike/run until the final duel in the last mile . . . hope he takes it tomorrow!
