The bib numbers and swim waves are up for Timberman - 9 short days away!!
First of all, I really would love to be stalked and feel the bloggy vibes - so I am bib # 2597 - Amanda Farrar. If you really can't remember anything else, I am from Caratunk, ME and the only one racing from there, so you could search http://ironman.com that way too.
I am hoping to win the very elite Short Spunky Girl From Caratunk division. I think I have this locked up.
Now for the news that I am not so psyched about. I am in the last swim wave - starting at 8:20 am - an hour and twenty minutes after the official start. That really bugs me. I hate starting last.
Really, it isn't a big deal, and I am mostly over it. I just know how it is when you are in the last wave and come out of the water into transition and it looks like a desert which mentally is a real hit for me for some reason.
OK, I am not really over it. I just said I was because it makes me seem like a much more reasonable person.
On the up side, I will get to pass some people on the bike which will be really good for my ego. I just hope I don't blow up on the bike trying to pass people, which could be another problem. Anyway, more on my Timberman plan later.
Stay tuned, I am going to have a few cool reviews and fun giveaways coming up tomorrow along with some info on the Mighty Mouse Adoption - helping the amazing pro athlete Angela Naeth get some bike sponsor love through the power of social media.
