BAA posted the bib numbers for the marathon. I got 2531, first wave, third corral. Basically I'm in the first wave of runners to start right behind the elites. Oh, I mean, I would be in the first wave if I was running. Which I will not be.
Can I just fly away to somewhere for the next month so I don't have to be reminded every single day about this? It's really putting me in an irritable mood.
At least my swimming is going pretty good. I've been hitting the pool as often as possible and just plugging along. I've never been a great swimmer so I am surprised that I am doing pretty well. Sunday I did two long stretches of swimming that came out to a total of 1.25 miles (2200 yards!) which is much farther than I though I could do. Now if I could just figure out how to swim fast I may do somewhat respectable in the swim portion of the triathlon. At least I'm pretty sure I won't drown at this point.
