Well, despite TSA’s best efforts to detain me when my NormaTec was deemed suspicious in the airport (just kidding, but I did have to answer a few questions!) I made it to Mexico!!!!! The travel day was long…..BWI–>LAX—>Cabo. But, no delays or any real hiccups and soon enough I was in paradise! April, my bff for the week, was already at our condo and greeted me with two things to make me feel like I was still at home – a chocolate chip cookie and some Dr. Phil! Nothing puts nerves at easy quite like either of those.
It’s not all fun and games though – I am still working full time out here (just lucky enough to have a job that allows me to work remotely). Working on east coast hours gives me plenty of afternoon time though to relax and go through my pre-race routines. I’ve been able to check out a lot of the bike course as well as the run course…..it is going to be a challenging course that will keep us honest, that is for sure! And it appears there will be plenty of elements like wind and heat to spice things up 🙂
In the meantime I have also learned that my Spanish is not nearly as good as I thought it was in my head. April and I have found an amazing restaurant that we’ve had dinner at twice. I am watching the water I drink and staying off my feet. All in all – things are adding up to a great day on Sunday! I’ll post tracking info here this weekend….For now, time for bed!
