This Is It

This is it. It's here. Tomorrow we travel to Louisville and the festivities begin. I can't believe 20 years of dreaming, one year of hoping, and nine months of training will all be reduced to one day. I'm scared. I'm nervous. I'm excited. I'm ready.

I'm taking my computer with me but I don't think I'll have internet access. This will, most likely, be my last post before the race. There will be lots of pictures taken and great stories will be told, but it will all have to wait until next week. I will have my iPhone and will be updating my Twitter and Facebook pages up until the race.

The fun starts Sunday approximately 7:00am. You can follow my progress here. I'm number 333. Make sure you tune into the live broadcast so you can see me cross the finish line. I think Dave will also be updating Twitter and Facebook too.

Next update, I will be an Ironman.

Enjoy every minute! You've earned it with every mile of your training. Congratulations on the success of making it so far already and when it gets tough, know that you have your friends and family supporting you and that Mike Reilly is waiting for you to cross that finish line to officially call you.. an Ironman! Best wishes!

Meredith,

I was reading your twitters and cheering you on this evening. Just say the message about being pulled off the course by medical. My heart hurts for you and hope that you are okay.

So sorry for your day didn't go as planned. Hoping that your year isn't over, I know there are other ironman distances open this year. The best to whatever you deside to do.
