One Week Before Augusta 70.3

One Week Before Augusta 70.3

So we have only one week left before Augusta 70.3.  This will be Bonnies first 70.3 so she is a just “a little” excited and jittery.  She will do fine.  This race will be harder for me because I will get very little sleep as she tosses and turns in nervous anxiety.  So after this weekend’s training I decided to take a nap but Chewie did not want me to take a nap.  After about 20 minutes of throwing this squeaky toy he finally settled down a bit.  But then he wanted to kiss me and get pet for another 20 minutes.  So my 1 hour nap turned into 20 minutes.  He’s like having a small kid in the house.  Finally he gave up and took a nap with me.  He placed his head on my shoulder and he slept more comfortably than me.

As you can see my dog hates me.

Finally some sleep!!

Chewie has no face in pictures. 
He's just a black blop of fur and ears.

This weekend’s training was 2K open-water swim, 10 miles on the treadmill and 63 miles on the bike.  It’s time to start tapering this week and hydrating.  No coffee or beer for me this week.  That will suck. Not sure how I will survive without my coffee.

WHAT NO COFFEE!!

  3. I saw in a comment of yours on another blog that you used to be Mayor Clayton at Give Kids the World and I just wanted to say thanks! My husband and I have two kids who have gotten wishes through make A Wish and we have had the blessing of staying at GKTW twice... so amazing and wonderful beyond words. Mayor Clayton pushed my 3 year old son on a swing and that is one of his favorite memories. I am sure you made many memories for other kids like that. Thanks!

  4. @Supermom. Wow that is super cool!! It's a small world. There is a good chance I saw your children. Mayor and I were close friends every Sunday night for 3 years. We were at the Candy Land party and I tucked the kids into bed. I used to jump on the beds and fall asleep in their beds. I always had a laugh when the kids tickled Mayor awake. Here is a picture of when Mayor Clayton and I were "close friends"

  6. Good luck on your 70.3! No coffee? I couldn't do it. I have coffee right before a race. Maybe that's one of my problems. ;)
