Early morning walk with Emma. Slightly shorter route than normal (2.25 instead of 2.6). I was able to bend over and pick up after her. Progress!

Just a short dip in Masonboro Inlet near the Coast Guard station. Lots of other triathletes were there!

Short splash this morning, I then Deployment of the Bags, car pre race meeting and pizza.

Ready to rock this!

Saw Monica and Tony from across the room at the athletes' meeting but by the time I got over to them the we're gone.

The RD said the water temperature is currently 71.


I think that all of my checking and rechecking and re-rechecking may be driving Kevin up a wall. I'm just nervous about forgetting some necessity. What if I forgot arm warmers/socks/gloves?

Super easy run through the neighborhood with a few strides.



Loading the car and heading to Wilmington.  Will probably "go dark" until after B2B.  Thanks for all of your support and kind thoughts.  Now it's time to kick some assets.

I've been in town eight hours and already hit Port City Java twice! Oh my!


Previewed bike course you refresh my memory. Then I picked up my packet (Monica said she was still an hour from Wilmington so we missed each other).

√ Ride tonight

Be fearless

Maija is suggestion that I eat about twice as much pre-race as I had planned.  Then during the race I'm planning on 200-250 calories per hour on the bike, concentrating a higher percentage mid ride to help avoid bloat and slosh on the run.  For the run 100 calories per 45 min + fluids.

Gear was washed yesterday.  I left it hanging to dry overnight and I'll get it into it's proper gear bag tonight. 

Emma is getting dropped at the sitter's tomorrow.

Checking the forecast for Saturday. Again.  (BTW, NW wind is good, kinda cross headwind on the way out and tailwind to T2.)

Accuweather         39/63/42        4 mph NW

Weather.com         36/62/43        6 mph NW

Weather Underground 43/61/48        5-10 mph N shifting to W

Part of the discrepancy is the inland forecast versus the coastal forecast. Overall, I'm happy with this.  I'll have to look at the hourly forecast on Friday to decide on vest of no vest (which would mean shoving a zip lock back under my jersey at the beginning.  I'll figure it out once I see how quickly it's expected to warm up.  Right now Accuweather has the RealFeel going above 60 at noon and to 70 by 2:00.
