Mission Accomplised

After all the build up to IM Wisconsin I thought that I would be able to write a huge post. All I can really say is "I did it". I am very proud and excited about it but my first thoughts were "whats next?" I want to do another one. The race went great. I couldn't have asked for a better day. I felt good the whole way and was in good spirits. Next event I want to be able to push the run. So that will be my winter mission: RUNNING! and hopefully running fast. For all those out there on Sunday: Great job. The participants and volunteers were amazing and really left me with appreciation of being able to be involved with this sport.

Those will be my magic numbers come this Sunday! I have been reading through many race blogs reading everyone's race day plans. Boy, people have things really thought out. I am unfortunate in that I have never been to the Madison area and only can picture it through the videos and from what I read. I like that some things are going to be a surprise and there is nothing that I enjoy more than getting to ride a new course. My race plan is simple:
Take it easy, enjoy every minute, stay focused and stay strong. This is something that I have always wanted to do so I have achieved my goal just by going through the training and getting to the race. The day will hold lots of surprises, some good and some bad but I am ready for whatever happens.
