Super Cool Advice from my boss

My new job is rockin', my new boss is a super cool dude that sent me an email on Friday afternoon with advice for my Ironman this coming weekend.....(I mean really? A boss that actually works out and gets what I am doing? Will I ever leave this place?)

"I thought I would forward these pearls of wisdom that I sent to two other CDA first-timers. Hope you enjoy:

Here's a little pre-Ironman advice from me to you:

Good luck next week. Have fun. Don't take it too seriously. Keep in mind it is a long training day – you are not going to win. Eat and drink more than you think you need. Smile and/or laugh every once in a while. Think about people during the race that are in much greater pain than you ever will be. Think about me barfing in the saltwater swim on my first Ironman – it was red because I drank cranberry juice that morning (I thought I was puking blood). Enjoy it when they take your wetsuit off for you – that never happens in real-life. Play games with yourself all day. Go easy when it feels hard and go hard when it feels easy. Don't think about the people who will be finishing as you get off the bike. Do something stupid when you cross the finish line. Say thank you to the volunteers. Have a beer after you are done, even if you don't want one. Stay at the finish line until the race is over – you will want to leave, but it will be worth it to see the last finishers. Be prepared to be mauled in the swim – if you expect to get kicked and lose your goggles it won't be a shock when it happens. Don't get an M-Dot tattoo, no matter what.

That should cover it. I wish I was going to be there competing and I will look forward to hearing about it when you finish."

I printed this out and I am going to read this over and over again....lot's of good advice. This week is about staying strong mentally and to not stop believing that I AM READY to take on 140.6 miles!!!

YIPPPEEEEEEE!!!

if you want an m-dot get it. don't worry about those who don't like it. if you finished you deserve to get/do whatever you want.:)
