Next time I talk to ya'll....

I'll be an Ironman

;-)

It was a very relaxed day today. As Jonathan would say- I'm getting in the Zone!!!

First we will play a little game. Guess the hot pro-triathlete bum:



It's Michael Lovato!

He was out at the Gatorade swim giving away a wetsuit to the person with the oldest rattiest suit. Not me! I have my sweet Nineteen Frequency that swims like a DREAM. Can't wait to put it into action in exactly 15 hours from this second!


The Smartasscrew was all getting into the zone today. Here is Miranda in the zone before her swim. She followed up her 4k open water swim with a 6 hour workout out on the bike course. She is one amazing tri-girl!


Jonathan in the Zone before starting his work with Sports Stats. He'll be ALL OVER the course tomorrow radioing back updates from the pro-race. It will be great to have a friend on the course!

Paulo was also in his zone. Looking down upon the age-groupers like me ;-)

He'll be riding along with Jonny tomorrow on the course. What fun!

And I spent my time getting a personal 60 minute ART session to loosen up all these tight muscles


And now, I'm ready.

And the Pit Crew is ready

Bring it on, Ironman. I'm ready to join the family.

Curly Su said...

Ellie80 said...

good luck!!!!! you'll smash it :)

erichollins said...

When you are done, I have a finisher's present for you. You have to guess at what it is. Ok, I'll give you a hint. Actually, I'll go ahead and show you.

It's these awesome workout shorts in the lame copper color! You can thank me later. ;-)

E-Speed said...

Good Luck Girl! I'll think of you on my measly 3 hour trail run :)

erichollins said...

You're probably just over half way done with the swim at this point. I looked up your number on IMlive.com and noticed your occupation was "medical student". The next IM that you do, you definitely need to put down "sexy doctor".

Oh, hurry up with the swim and get on the bike so that I can go for my run. ;-)

erichollins said...

Crap. CDA is in the Pacific time zone, not the Mountain. At this point now, you should be about half way through with your swim. I'm going running now so I'll cheer you on when I get back.

Papa Louie said...

You have a great pit crew. Go Jodi. We are excited for you and want to hear, Jodi, you are an Ironman!

erichollins said...

Hey, you had a great swim! 500th-ish out of 2600 people. You are officially a fish now.

Angry Runner said...

I am so very jealous of the ART guy. Good Lord...Can't wait to read your victory speech.

SkiRough said...

Checkin in to get your digits so i can stalk ya :)

those workout shorts are too funny. you'll have to also get some shiny sturrup tights for yoga class

SkiRough said...

Okay so I just checked your swim time and... speedy! Also your first bike split is hauling :) Go Jods!

I am watching the IMlive coverage now :) love it!

erichollins said...

Almost 17mph for the second segment. Keep it up, Jodi! You're almost off the bike and I'm sure Mike Honcho is proud of you.

erichollins said...

You're on the run now! You kicked ass on the bike. Congrats. And your T1 and T2 times are great. You're looking strong. On 26 1 mile repeats and then you're an Ironman!

Jodi's Mom said...

Wow. Good picture from the camera attached to Paulo's balls.

Negative splits on the bike = impressive.

Your mom

erichollins said...

Keep rocking the run, Jodi! I'm not going to bed tonight until I see that you're an Ironman.

E-Speed said...

Just saw you cross on the on-line video!!! 12:37! You are amazing!

TriSaraTops said...

You are an Ironman! Congrats!

erichollins said...

Congratulations! Jodi Thomson, you are an Ironman! I knew that you would kick ass. Now, go grab a beer.
