Here It Comes...

... my first "Peak Week" of the 2008 season! YES! This is specifically to prepare for Lake Stephens 70.3 in 3 weeks. So basically, this week will be uh... heavy on the training side... and I can't WAIT! Robby likey da pain.

ALSO, on Friday I'll be heading up to Idaho to volunteer at IM CdA over the weekend! No... I'm NOT doing it to "give back"... I'm doing it to scope out the course AND ensure a slot for myself in '09. I'll have a big fat ride on the course on Saturday followed immediately by a longish run. Ought to be really FUN! The next day my volunteer duties begin... whatever THAT means! I'm hoping to be the "Strip the Wetsuit Off the Studly Female Triathlete" guy. Or perhaps the "Cover the Ripped Female Triathletes in Sunscreen" guy. Actually, I specifically requested to be at the run aid station between miles 18 and 22. This is where I've heard things get hard. This is where I want to be. I want to see it, experience it, and if I can, help in a very simple way... with a big freakin smile and a couple of friendly words. I CAN'T WAIT!

The extra added super-duper bonus is that I get to meet and hang out with the likes of, Blink, Bigun, TriSherpa Di, Taconite Boy, and Trimama! It's going to be a GREAT time!

Big week! Thanks for reading...

You're going to be "hand cups of water to the runners covered in pee, sweat, blood, salt and poo" guy. I've been there. I know what happens at mile 18 :)

You are doing CDA next year? Same with me! Hopefully the lake will be warmer next year :) Have a great time out there
