The cut off for the "25.00" came up at Computrainer class Monday.
My response was, I would pay more then that in interest if I put it on a credit card.

I am still on the fence about this.
Mostly, I am sick of training.
I think I am going to wait a few months to decide.

I figure I need to put a line in the sand this year and focus my training a little more for this. A full Ironman is something totally different to me, and probably would feel the same way you do about training. At least with a half, I can still train at a higher intensity and do well at other shorter races without sabotaging my longer races. We'll see. Hope to see you there.

Hey CP...

Were you able to drop off your bike and register on Saturday?
As I recall, I think I did everything on Friday.
This year, I can't take time off for the event.
So I have to be able to everything on Saturday or not run it.

From memory, we got there a little late on Saturday night, but no issues at all, and no rush to get a good spot in T1/2 because you're assigned a spot. I will probably do the same thing this year, show up that night, set up, stay in hotel, and hammer down the next morning.

That is a good goal, and very doable for you now. I'll go on record as saying you will do it this year. Not by much, but I think you will do it.

Ken, I'll sneak you food from the buffet if you hide out at the bottom of the lake with your diving propellor and take CP out when he goes by.

Ken, I knew I could count on you! Lol

CP, it has to be all over for you once you hit the bike! Once I put my running shoes on lots of ground gets made up!

Shit!!! I think I need to pick up 20 watts on my FTP and lose 5 more pounds to limit enough of the damage you'll do to me on the bike! That's a whole lot of work I'd have to do between now and then!! Lol

I already lost 4 ounces on my shoes, so hopefully my running gets better.
