130 Days and Counting...

Someone asked me about the pictures in the posts, and yes they are all my pictures (minus the beer bottle). No real reason for some of them, other than I am hoping to make the posts less boring by adding visual stimulation. :-)

-Breakfast: fiber one bar, one packet of fruit snacks, 2 cups of coffee.
-Lunch: One can of chili, mixed with 1/3 cup of salsa con queso, and fritos chips (BEST munchy fix EVER).
-Dinner: 2 packets of instant oatmeal.
-Snacks: 24oz of cranberry juice, chocolate truffle, Cheese, and a HUGE helping of goldfish crackers.

-Training: 55 minutes on the treadmill at 6.5 mph (RPE5, pretty close to race pace). Didn't have time to do a brick workout today, as we had baby class again. That was pretty cool, as we got to talk about stages of labor and delivery... Seems crazy that it is 13 weeks away!

While I was on the treadmill I watched the recap of the 2008 IM World Championship from Kona, HI (I taped it on the DVR in December). It is absolutely incredible and motivating to watch. My only hope of getting there is if I win a lottery spot (you have to qualify with a fast enough time, or win one of 200 spots given out in a lottery), but the people and the stories of that race are amazing. One of the profiled athletes was a 20 year old kid who broke his back in a moto-cross accident when he was 18, and was competing with a hand cycle for the bike segment, and a wheel chair for the run segment. Seeing stories like that REALLY put into perspective how lucky we are to have what we have, and do what we do.
