Gobble, Gobble & here we go!

This turkey was in our yard this morning. At one point he came up on our deck. We also saw some Mongoose, which I am not talented enough (or fast enough) to capture pictures of.
Bike bag, special needs bag, I need new legs bags - these were all filled and quadruple checked. It is amazing to me how much time can be spent getting ready for a single event!

And I finally went and got rid of the bike. She's spending the night with all the other bikes. I told her to be nice. Some very nice local gentleman took me through transition and then asked me if I was married. 

So this is it - today I was nervous for the first time, and then I realized once again that it's JUST A RACE, and whatever happens tomorrow doesn't change who I am as a person. So now it's time to have fun! Next time I blog the 2008 season is OVER and I'm officially on vacation in Hawaii! Most excellent!
