Four days until the next race

Four days until the last race of the season, the Soma Triathlon, another half-iron distance race.  This one is particular exciting because my Dad will be flying into town then we will drive over to Tempe, AZ for the race.  Jamie surprised me earlier this week by saying she will be coming to the race.  I thought she wasn't going to be able to come because of a friends wedding she is attending on Saturday.  She bought a one-way ticket which is really awesome.  I'm really happy she will be there with me along with my Dad.

I did my race nutrition plan tonight.  I left what worked (nutrition) and fixed what didn't (hydration/electrolytes) during the Orangeman Triathlon.  I was able to get some advice from Vic Kinnunen, another Type-1 diabetic that just finished the Kona Ironman.  Vic supplied me with just the advice I needed.

I've been a little sore lately but will hopefully be well rested before the race.  I've felt I've maintained good fitness over the last three weeks but a nice light taper this week will be nice.  After the race I will take some time off then work on building my swim and cycling base while taking some time off from running.
