333. Yep, I might have the coolest number ever. 333. That's like triple lucky. :)
Upon hearing I had a number I broke down in tears. This has pretty much happened everyday, but this was the first time in public. I have been so emotional about this race and now that I have a number, it's really real.
I have been training for nine months. It's been a really long time; it's been a really short time. I have logged hundreds of hours and thousands of miles. Yet, the distance still scares me. I'm trying to keep it all in perspective. Since November I have...
- Swam 164,025 meters. That's equivalent to 102.5 miles, which is over 42 Ironman length swims.
- Biked 2,100.8 miles. That is nearly 19 Ironman length bike rides.
- Ran 501.38 miles. That is equivalent to 19 marathons.
The hard work is done. The taper is going so quickly. In 13 days I'll be on the starting line...
