Sunday's the big day, kids, and I'm just back from France. Jetlag seems to be relatively under control and today I'm heading up to pick up my race packet. Tomorrow (when the weather report is predicting a high of 99 degrees), I'll ride my bike up to the transition area, where it will stay (protected by garbage bags), until I rejoin it very early Sunday morning.
If you're an early riser, and want to watch the race, you can find detailed info on that here (I'll be starting at about 6:30; will hit the run around 9 and finish around 10ish), and you can find me at the Team in Training tent near the bandshell at the end of the race. I'll be wearing a purple Team in Training tank, Team in Training black and purple tri shorts, a yellow number 2388 and a white visor (for the run) and will be on a blue bike with pink handlebars (for the bike). Good places to watch the run are along 72nd Street from Henry Hudson Parkway to Central Park West, Cherry Hill before we head to the finish on Dead Road in Central Park, and Dead Road in Central Park near the bandshell off the 72nd Street Transverse. If you want to watch the bike, head to the West Side Highway. A detailed version of where to watch each event can be found here.
There's also an athlete tracking app this year! For a mere 99 cents you can track my progress on your phone. Android and iPhone versions are available.
If you're not an early riser, come celebrate anytime after 6 pm at the 8th St. Winecellar.
Regardless, please support my efforts by making a donation to the Leukemia Lymphoma Society -- it'll make you feel good!
