So I got a wild hair up my a$$ this afternoon... Wild hairs like this are dangerous and costly because you do things like enter races which require you to travel to the mainland, um, NEXT WEEKEND! Nothing like a last minute decision to spend the weekend in Lubbock. Lol.
I was out running this morning... 14 hilly miles that probably would NOT have been on my schedule had I actually planned on racing another 70.3 next weekend... but I was feeling good... and you know how when you run long your mind goes to all sorts of places that it does not go when you are not running... Well, it was clear to me on this run that I am not over the fact that I flatted at Honu. Not. Over. It. I want another shot to put together the race I have earned all spring. So I came home and logged on to Ironman.com and saw that the race in Lubbock was still open... But it's, um, a week from today. Perfect. Ha!
After studying at the list of gals who are entered in my age group and the results from last year, I did a bit of research on Expedia.com and then had a conversation with my awesome husband and, well, hit ENTER on my computer. It's that easy. Clearly it's much easier to enter a race than to actually race it! Lol.
I'm going alone, but I won't be lonely because I'll get to hang out with a couple of blogger friends! Gotta love this internet thing for how it connects us all. Unfortunately one of the blogger friends who will be there is Kerrie... so let's just say I hope that there's an extra slot in our age group.
Now if I can just keep air in my tires next weekend...
