30 Days

30 short days until IMTX.  I still have more to do on my training plan (including my long ride this weekend of 100 - which will basically be my second century) and some higer volume runs.

I've come to realize that I'm not going to be as prepared as I want to be for this race.  I accept that and can take blame for about 90% of why I'm not there or where I want to be.

If I can finish within 15 hours I will be fine.

The break down is like this:

90 minute swim
15 minute transition
7 hour bike
15 minute transition
6 hour marathon

That's 15 hours on the nose.  I'd love to go sub 13:30 but I don't think that's in the cards.

I'm going to have fun and soak in the day/night......

I'm sure that y'all have heard about the explosion in West, TX.  West is a VERY small town about half way between my town and Austin.  I think most people in the Dallas area know where it is becuase you have to go thru it on the way to Waco/Austin.....and they have the best kolaches in the world.  If there is a kolache that exists they make it.  There are several of these shops right off the highway....and I've never been to one that I haven't had to wait at least 20 minutes in line.  They are that popular.

Keep these people in your prayers......


  1. Smile and keep your heart rate down. Drink and eat like it's your job and finish! Easy for me to say right?? HAHAHAHA! I'm excited for you!

  2. My thoughts and prayers go out to ones affected by the West TX event
