I'm sorry...what was I thinking??

Tomorrow...

Tomorrow marks the beginning of a weekend that is going to be filled. Filled with fun, girl time, new friends, old friends, LOTS of catching up, laughter to tears and so much more.

All of that will be followed by nerves, tears, tears, hopefully no throwing up or peeing my pants.

It is the 3rd annual Ramblin' Rose Triathlon. This year we have decided to make a weekend of it and get a lake house on Lake Norman. There are 17 ladies this year from 3 different states and all walks of life. It has been a whirlwind to plan housing, meals and the BEST Gift bags ever!!!

In the midst of all this, it hit me today...I am so NOT READY FOR THIS THING!!!! I haven't trained enough and I don't have the excuse of being super sick this year. Why, oh why do I agree to do these things.

I will wear my markings for as long as I can, avoiding the soap that will wash them off. I will wear my SWEET t-shirt with pride and not be embarassed of the concert -t mentality. I will place my sticker for all to see on my van, no matter how dorky all my stickers look and pale in comparison to David's accomplishments.

I SHALL STAND TALL AND LIMP WITH PRIDE...FOR I AM...A TRIATHLETE!!!

  2. Those truly were the BEST gift bags ever! I was emptying my things today and the girls were saying "who gave you ALL THIS STUFF!" Followed by a lot of "ooh, can I have that - Is that candy?" I can't possibly thank you enough for all you've done, not just the goody stuff but the spiritual stuff as well. Some of your words on Wednesday took the entire experience to a new and better level! Thank you my friend!
