It's been forever since I did on update on the triathlon. The doozy of a cold I had back in June totally squelched my training plan, desire to do the race and has left me with only a mustard seed of faith that I'll actually make it through. But what God can do with a mustard seed...
Dave and I picked up our packets today. Turns out we're in a different wave (the, ahem, gap in our ages throws us into different categories ;) ). So much for "doing this together," as Dave promised me on the outset. Thankfully, I have a 5 minute lead on him, and guess that he'll catch me up in the bike portion (if was the other way around, I don't think I'd see Dave until the finish line). Unless God decides to move a mountain and have me maintain a 5 min. lead.
So, with great trepidation, and a lot of hope that, indeed, God wants to be the One to bring me though, it looks like I'll be jumping in with both feet into the triathlon. Point-four mile swim, 16 mile bike, 5K run and a good long nap afterwards.
