Well, ready or not here we go. The chills from my month long flu are still slightly around, but Im taking it quite easy this week in preparation for Saturday.
Then I saw this forcast
OMG....24 mph sustained up to 40 mph gusts
I hope that wind prediction settles down. I looked at a few other sites (weather underground/weather bug) they do not predict winds that high. I'm mentally preparing for the middle ground 18 mph head wind. This would be in the first 20 miles of the race like last year.
If your not familiar with Wildflower its the woodstock of Triathlon. About 4000 participants in 4 races over 2 days. Many of racers camp (we did our hard time last year camping...never again). The long course or 70.3 is considered one of the toughest in the world. Lots of climbing on the bike and the run is just plain ridiculous. 1/2 trail 1/2 road tons of big hills.
Tac heads in with 24 less pounds and better gearing for his bike. He's rested, thats for sure.
Looking forward to seeing Kahuna, Greyhound and Curly Su.
If anyone else is going this weekend please email us so we can meet up!
Try to post from CA as well
UPDATE: Tacky just razor shaved his legs.....Ohh la la....now he's really feeling dialed in.
