Just one week until Columbia! Who's in? I'll be bringing up the rear of my AG.
IN. And my finish time will likely be more similar to my 70.3 PR than my typical OLY time.
IN. I feel good, but that all remains to be seen. Do we have a Tent for the race???
I'm in. I'll be in the back with you Sandy. I've done a darn good job tapering for this one.
Any word on the gear order? -Bella
I'm in. Rumor has it that the water is still pretty cold!
I'm in. I thought the water was really cold last year at mid 60's so I hope it won't be colder than that.
I'm in. Training duathlon this past weekend gave me a reality check on my estimated finish time (minus Columbia's hills). Can't wait until I turn 45 - then get the 2nd swim wave - as opposed to second to last now - 8:09 start time. Well - if there is a tent, it will be fun getting to know everyone while we stand around.
Counting on the cold water. Dare I say it - hope the rain stays away. Would settle for overcast skies though since I'll be starting so late.
IN! for the bike. carolina and sheriece will be bookending me. after this weekend, a 41k bike should be a piece of cake!
It looks like the tent will be there. Most likely it'll be set up near the finish area so we'll be able to cheer in everyone at the finish.
I'm in! Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
In for back of the pack. Forecast is for T'storms on Sunday. What do they know?
i can take anything but the sodding wind. :)
In! Aiming for Columbia's unique "Most Improved" award. Still slow, but getting faster. I'll be dreaming of a chocolate chip cookie at the finish. :)
IN for the run leg of the mighty Team Schadenfreude... preceded by two very tall, fast men (it's how I roll).
In...broken toe and all.
in... but after doing a half ironman this past weekend, my body's pretty broken down & the hills may defeat me.
catherine-- i'm w/ you, see ya @ the cookies :)
Yeah - so glad I'll be having some fun company at the back of the pack. I am in the 2nd to last swim wave, again.
Let's hope for some good stuff at the expo -
Did you see that Chrissie Wellington will be there? However, I don't plan on running into her on the race course; unless of course she is hard core and cheers the back of the packers on at the finish : ) If not, I'll join you for the cookies and perhaps post race massage.
Hey Doris - I think you'll still beat me to the tent. Save me a cookie, okay?
COOKIES!!!!! Awesome..... I am so glad I am in.
I should mention that the only reason I have cookies on the brain is that someone offered in another thread to bring cookies to the tent. Sorry - I don't remember who, but I think his sister was baking them.
