It’s race week, y’all!
I’ve got a lot of last-minute details to wrap up before I head to Madison on Thursday — packing, mostly — so I thought I would open the floor for suggestions on two of the items on my to-do list.
First, I need a pre-race playlist to get my psyched in the 24 hours leading up to the race. I know the atmosphere will be plenty good for that, but some good music to get me focused and my head in the game while I’m doing all my race-day prep would be great. Suggestions in the comments section, please! Bonus points for country songs…
Second, I still haven’t picked my finish-line celebration. I want to do something memorable that matches the excitement I’ll be feeling when I hear Mike Reilly say — finally — that I am an Ironman. I’d rather not look back at the race photos and see something lame, like me stopping my watch. You gotta soak up the moment, especially for your first one, right?
So — this is fun:
Finally, this brings me to tears. We’re down to the final days, can you believe it?!?
