    Good luck with the training, and don’t forget to lean on your friends when it feels like too much. We believe in you.

    I have no doubt that you will not only complete both of these events, you will do an amazing job of it! You are incredible and inspire so many of us to step outside our comfort zone. Thank you for just being you. ❤️

    You should be starting any day now, and that’s super-exciting!

    I have two pieces of advice from having done this for five seasons now. (1) Do the training. I know this sounds like a no-brainer, but there are going to be many days as the training goes on when you just won’t want to go for a swim, bike, run, brick, or strength workout. You’ll be tired. It will be cold. You might (like me) be dreading what your diabetes might do. It’s normal to want to avoid it some days, but in order to have a successful 70.3, you really have to do almost all of the workouts… unless you’re sick or injured, of course. Hopefully, that won’t happen. Training is going to take a lot of time, and you’ll be tired early in the day, so avoid saying “Yes” to all of the social stuff that might come your way, especially as you get closer to your 70.3. (2) Be prepared to make mistakes and learn from them. Almost every tri I’ve done has resulted in me knowing more about how to handle the less-than-perfect moments of a race. (A lot of the long training days have, too.) Learning to cope with these things–even if it’s just the boredom of a 3-5 hour solo bike ride–will help you so much in the long run.

    And have fun!

    I’m looking forward to following your progress.
