  1. Wing it! Screw the plan :-) Have a great race!! Woo hoo!!

  2. Just have FUN out there, spin up those hills, don't worry about the hills, they are just ant hills to you..

    You will do great at the OLY, can't wait to hear about it.

  3. OOOOOH! A PLAN!!!!
    I luuuuuurve a plan! (don't listen to Wes he is far too spontaneous LOL)

    Have a great race! Can't wait to hear how you rocked it!

    BTW I am thrilled there is a place called Elephant Butt :D

  4. Isn't Wes funny ;o)

    Go for it Lisa, the plan looks great! Enjoy it :o)

  5. Looks good to me :-)

  6. Great plan...maybe I need one, too! I had a dream about the race last night. For some reason, I was so fast on the swim (which we know is NOT true!) The wind was actually pushing me through the water. I was like "wow, I am so awesome." Then, I got to transition and could only move in slow motion. I wanted to go faster but couldn't. I kept putting on the wrong stuff, and even put on my son's football socks instead of my cycling socks!

  7. LOL Wes!!

    I like your plan! Can I copy that format for my tri?

    Good luck!! You are going to do great!

  8. Sounds like a good plan to me. Have fun with it and good luck in the race!

  9. Now that's what I call a plan. Hope it all falls into place. How exciting. We'll be waiting for the post !

  10. Love your list! Have a great time out there.

  11. The most important thing is to have fun. I can't wait to hear...

  12. How great to race this late in the season, that alone would have me smiling- have a great one!

  13. I love how you include thank volunteers in the plan :) And Woohoo-ing. You can't leave out the woohoo! :)

  14. Love the plan. Good luck and have a great time
