Well, Karen and I have arrived in Arizona. Actually, we rolled in yesterday afternoon around 4pm. I had hoped to get in a little earlier to handle my registration, but the 1-hour time difference doesn't always work in your favor.
We spent last night hanging out with friends and were out a little too late, so this morning is off to a slow start. But that's ok. This morning's agenda is to pick up my registration packet and drive the bike course. The Ironman dinner is tonight as well.
I will write more later, once this day gets going.
The notion of doing this event has not hit me yet.
