2316 is ready to race!

Bib numbers were assigned for IMFL today and I am #2316!

There is always a lot of excitement around this announcement ... not that the bib numbers themselves are all that exciting, it is the excitement of knowing that the assignment of bib numbers is just another sign that race day is almost here [as if the countdown clock approaching single digits didn't scream that fact to me already!]

Next week at this time I will be double checking my lists and finishing up my packing for Florida. There is much to be done in the next week, but once all of the packing is done (packing = stress) I am going to make a deliberate effort to take a deep breath and enjoy every moment of our vacation and the Ironman experience.

I am sure there will be butterflies, but I am ready to race!

I'm glad you're excited about bib numbers too. :) And yes isn't the packing stressful?? We're leaving on Sunday so I've got tons to do this week. I'm jealous you're driving, but I guess with your family that doesn't give you extra space.

Yay! I'm sure you are organized as you always are!

2316, now that's a solid sound number. I'm liking that one. Have a great race in FL, I can't wait to read about your day and your experience. Enjoy it, keep a smile on your face! Have fun!


i'm jealous of kendra. I wanted a single of double digit. I am up there with you in the 21 or 22 hundreds

I stayed home sick from work today but just kept thinking of more lists to make/things to add to those lists....not sure my sick day was quite as restful as it needed to be!
