Did it again!

Not that lightning can strike twice, but I put my name into the Ironman lottery 2009 again.

Also, signed up for Silver Strand Half, Las Vegas Full, and Carlsbad Full tonight.  Had previously signed up for Harpeth Hills, Dallas White Rock, and Disneyworld.

Have to get my flight set up for Nashville and Dallas in short order.  No more time!

5 X 400 Z3 @ :20 rest, 10 X 200 Z4 @ :10 rest, 5 X 400 Z3 @ :20 rest. Great workout actually, even if I didn’t have my Garmin on. (The friggin thing stopped working.)
