Everyday things are getting more real. Yesterday I checked in and received my bib number. I am fairly superstitious about race numbers. I say fairly because I refuse to let a bad number affect my mentality for the race, but if I have a good number, I’ll certainly take the extra boost! I am happy to report that I have officially deemed 1978 as a great number for several reasons:

  • it’s an even number
  • there is no 4 BUT there is an 8 which is a multiple of 4
  • Coachie was born on June 13, 1978!
  • The very first Ironman was in 1978
  • In 1978 the Baltimore Orioles finished the season with a .559 winning percentage!

Today I am off to swim with the dolphins, so more later!
