The Last Supper

The Caesar's Creek Triathlon is tomorrow! The Pilot and I just joined the rest of my team for a pasta party to celebrate all of our training and fundraising. We raised over $25,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society!

We had dinner at Buca di Beppo and sat at the "Pope table." Politically incorrect comments ensued. I am now full of pasta, getting ready to load up the car and then it's off to bed for me. The alarm is set for 4:00 am. Yowza. Tomorrow morning I will swim 750 meters (I like to call that a 1/2 mile), bike 22k (13.6 miles) and then run 5K (3.1 miles). Technically this is my first sprint triathlon (I did a super sprint in 2009 and then jumped right to the Olympic distance in 2010). I know I can make the distance but still, my goal is to just finish. That doesn't mean that I don't have some times floating around in the back of my brain. I'd love for a 21 minute swim, 68 minutes on the bike and anything under 45 minutes for the run will make me happy because that means I'm moving faster than my normal walk pace. :)


  1. Good luck Amber!! I bet you will do great! The Pope table is flippin' hilarious! We have a Buca, but I don't remember a Pope table :O Get some rest and ROCK it tomorrow!
