Eagleman 70.3 tomorrow!

It's quite windy here on the Eastern Shore of Maryland today, but tomorrow's forecast is: "Partly cloudy. Highs in the mid 70s. West winds 10 to 20 mph." Which is *incredibly* good as long as the winds don't get too strong and the chop in the Choptank River doesn't chop me up!

They say that there will be live timing on http://www.ironman.com/ But I don't see any evidence of it there yet. I'll be racing Natascha Badmann, but they're giving her a big head start. Good thing, she'll probably need it.

Race website is:
http://www.tricolumbia.org/eagleman.html

which includes a full listing of competitors here:

I'll bet if they post race times they won't be adjusted for swim wave start times, which are here: http://www.tricolumbia.org/eaglemansub/swim_waves.html

Good luck to everyone! I'm heading over to the race expo and check-in in 2 or 3 hours, but I'll be back tonight to check email and to toss and turn in my own bed. :-)

Don't toss and turn... it's just another training day. Sleep long, and soundly :) You'll do great!

Nancy, good luck!!! It was a year ago I started reading your blog!! I remember reading about Eagleman thinking, wow, she did a 1/2 Ironman - how cool. Give Natasha a run for her money tomorrow.

Ditto what Dawn said. I'll be thinking of you and Ellie during my 10 mile training run tomorrow.

Keep Natasha on her toes!
