I'll make you laugh, or break my neck trying. This is usually accomplished with daily bouts of swimming, biking and running. A former "chub-a-holic," I got fit and healthy the good old fashioned way and went from a mid-pack athlete to top age group runner and triathlete. I'm a Writer and USAT Level 1 Certified Triathlon Coach. I guess that makes me part Tina Fey and part Jillian Michaels. Visit my coaching site at www.fomotraining.com

A Little Pre-Race Stress Ball

Well...I was going to post this yesterday, but I was hoping it was a light-hearted April Fools Joke from my friend. Alas, it was not... As if there weren't enough pre-race stresses associated with this trip, it turns out that our RV connection to Tempe backed out this week and we've found ourselves without transportation to Arizona! ( I guess there's always the bike!)

Not sure if I mentioned, but we're doing the anti-typeA athlete thing and road-tripping out to Tempe in a rockin' RV. We're not staying at the team hotel, opting instead to lounge in an RV Park with my non-IM friends and family. This all sounded pretty awesome until it crumbled slightly yesterday. Unfortunately, our basic mode of transport is...shall we say...GONE!

Today, my husband spent his day working on Plan B...Have no fear. We will get to the start line! It may just look like this :-)

Did you ever see Little Miss Sunshine?

That is what I envision for your trip to imaz, now.

on no! Well, I'm sure plan B will come together, everything always comes together. Per your comment on my blog - no joke - I threw my bra at Davy Jones at a Monkees concert when I was 17 in Cincinnati! What are the odds of both of us throwing our bras and "boy bands" in Cinti. Pretty crazy.
