Tomorrow I start the all-day trek cross-country to Knoxville. One flight, then another, then a long drive. I only just learned today that not all of Tennessee is in the same time zone – I had presumed that Knoxville was in the same time zone as Nashville but it is not. What this means is that I’ll roll into Knoxville starved for dinner and ready to crash! I’m glad Kate will get there first to check into our room and scout some food options.
I’ll try to blog Saturday if I get some downtime in between the practice swim, checking in, athlete meeting, driving the bike course, and trying to load some calories into my body. So just in case…
Here is the relevant info for Sunday morning!
Start time: My wave goes off at 8:15 am EST (5:15 am PST).
Athlete Tracking: Available at the Rev3 Tri Website. It’s supposed to be quite good real-time tracking. I’ll let you all tell me if it really is.
Goals: A big fat honkin’ PR. Hopefully when I scope out the course on Saturday, I’ll get a better sense of how feasible this is. But here are my 2008 Olympic triathlon times to beat, preferably crush:
Swim 45:58/Bike 1:42:23/Run 1:05:26/Total 3:39:56
And with that, I leave you with a few new puppy photos. 18 days old and getting fuzzier by the day!
