48 hours til the Hy-Vee Triathlon

I attended the pre-race briefing and expo this morning…all leading up to the Hy-Vee Triathlon on Sunday.  I’ll be getting into the water at 6:07AM and making my way out into the middle of a very nice lake while most of the world still sleeps.  (7/8ths of a mile or 1.5km)

At about 6:40AM, I’ll emerge from that water, ditch my trusty Quintana Roo wet suit, and hop on my Trek Madone 5.2SL for a stroll through West Des Moines.(24 miles or 40k)

At about 8:00AM, I’ll park my bike and dawn running shoes and a visor and begin running up and down hills.

At about 9:07 I’ll cross the finish line and raise my hands having completed an Olympic Distance Triathlon for the first (and probably the last) time.

I’m already getting nervous with all of the details, prep, logistics.
What will it be like tomorrow night as I try to sleep knowing that the alarm is going off at 245AM or so.  Yes, we need to be down there early.

Here we go!
