9 days to go for my first Half Iron distance. The race will take place in Croton Park, Westchester on Sunday, September 12th. Training has gone great so far. I missed 6 days of training due to a glute injury, but all is well now. This weekend will be the last long bike/brick workout before heading into taper week starting Monday. My bib # is 120. I am in wave #4 which is due to start at 7:15am. First wave goes at 7:00am. I will be spotting a swim designated “yellow cap” – sunshine (as Bob Marley sings in “the sun is shining”, hopefully the sun will be shinning and the weather will be sweet).
