Might be last post until after race. Heading out in a few to pick up parents from airport, then driving a couple hours to Frankfurt. Will be linking up with Neil at the race meeting tonight.

Big Mojo coming your way, Jim. We'll be soaking up miles and watching your progress all the way through the finish line. Here's hoping for wetsuit temps this year!

OK, there is always time for one more post. What fun is an IM without some time targets? My training is not up to snuff this year, so no crazy goals, just looking to enjoy it.


Swim: with WS, 1:25, w/o WS, 1:40 (2006 1:37)

Bike: 6:30 (2006 6:00)

Run: 4:15 (2006 last 10 mile deathmarch 5:39)

If you see me come off the bike faster than goal time, you can bet I will not have fun on the run.

We'll see how it goes.

I'll bet you'll beat those swim times w or w/o wetsuit. If you do, don't get caried away and hammer the bike, you want to have fun! Good luck, I'll be watching what I can.
