Update...3 weeks out to IMCDA

150 miles biking, 8000 yards swimming (1/2 open water!) and 28 miles running in the last 7 days.

Feeling good. No injuries. Ready for the taper! Thank God.

Got up early Sunday to sherpa Trimama in her first Olympic. Besides being smoking hot, she raced preatty hot too. Well except for the wardrobe/wetsuit malfunction, but I'll let you read that for itself.

I just went to the water temperature guage at IMCDA. Yes Tac obsesses much. Crap that water is going to be cold. But Hey, Ironman races always have something. Wisconsin is the course and the weather, Arizona the wind and heat, Florida usually the cold and wind ect. I take the Iron Jenny approach, it's just another day, keep moving because 70 year old nun's do this!

Bigun and Tac have found very little time to Podcast. Were hoping to get one more episode out before the race.

Early summer is here in Minnesota. Beautiful temps... and big storms with Hail! Holy cow. The whole house was shaking after this one....






Some Pics of Mama at her Oly...





Have a good week!

I'm going to have to remember the 70-year-old nun thing next time I do an Ironman. Funny... we had a crazy storm yesterday... skies went from sunny to black in about 10 seconds, started raining sideways with thunder and lightning, finnished with some hail and then the sun came back out.

Training has certainly picked up, plus no injuries great job. Enjoy the taper. It wouldn't be Minnesota if there wasn't some sort of frozen water on the ground!

I am WAY pumped to meet the legendary couple! I've asked Bigun already... but are you two light or dark beer drinkers?!

Safe travels...
