I'm Here!

I've arrived!

10.5 hours in the car and 3 stops later, we arrived in PCB yesterday around 4 pm. Got into the room as the sun was setting over a FLAT gulf! The weather was warm but not hot and it cooled down with the sunset, but it was not cold.

We went to Iron Bob's for dinner and I got to meet a couple of fellow bloggers, Kendra and Melissa. It was neat to meet in person people I have been following online. Then it was to Walmart to stock the condo -- it had been decimated by the Ironman community.

The forecast this week is the same every day, so here is to hoping that race day is as beautiful as it is this morning. I am headed out shortly for a swim where I hope to meet a large Beginner Triathlete crew and then I will hit Ironman village to pick up my packet and check out the expo.

I am looking forward to an afternoon on the beach with my boys!

Hope you had a great swim with the BTers this morning. I will be arriving tonight and am planning on swimming in the morning. And of course, I'll be on the course Saturday cheering you on and maybe catching you at the finish line. Good luck!

The water looks lovely! I don't know what kind of water you hope for, but I would imagine calm is a good thing.
