Crazy girl alert...

Honestly, I don't remember getting hit in the head. Because that must be the only reason I'm going to get up in a few short hours to go do the Chicago Triathlon. Yesterday, I drove from Washington DC to my sister's home outside of the Windy City. It ended being the only way that I could afford to get my Trek here in time for the race -- many trials and tribulations involved with that whole ordeal.

Anyway, while I was picking up my race packet and getting body-marked this afternoon, the reality of what I'm about to do struck. "Whatever possessed me to think that this was a good idea," I thought to myself. "I must be insane." Well, crazy is as crazy does and I am about to get certifiable.

Right now, I'm searching for my pre-race swagger. I know I can do this, now it's time to go. How's that for bravado. It helps that I'll have my family on the sidelines cheering me on and my friends back home tracking me through the alert system. Also, big thanks to everyone for your emails of support and especially to Jen Polo, my fellow Trek Woman, who sent me some great advice for getting through my first tri.

I'm off to bed, the dawn awaits.


Rachel Rose and I are going to be tracking you all day, Girl!! We're excited for you!!
