Numb

Not much tonight, in part because I just don't know what to write. It is the eve of my first ironman, and I have no idea what I'm supposed to be feeling, nor am I even quite sure what I am feeling. I am at moments excited, secure, scared, confident, and they all follow each other so quickly that I'm not sure I feel anything at all.

I am . . . an unknown.

Hey. I was at the meet up today but did not get a chance to say Hi to you. We will be cheering for you tomorrow after we get done with the body marking. Good Luck.

well, at least it sounds like you are not blogging from the toilet bowl - which is probably where I'd be, were I in your shoes about now. So use it. Use the numbness. Feel it.

You only get a first time once. Enjoy it!

You'll go out there and do what you trained to do. And you'll be just fine.

Try to get some sleep, and best of luck to you tomorrow!
