Sprint Tri is this weekend

I am doing the Iron Goddess Tri in a beautiful recreational area just north of us in Michigan with one of my friends. We did this same race together last year and had a great time, so we're going back. We're even staying in the same Holiday Inn Express.

I have a bunch of things that I have to do tomorrow morning. Not only packing, but I also finally bought aerobars for my bike and have to put those on and get them adjusted, plus it's finally time to add a water bottle cage to my bike frame so I could actually go on a ride longer than an hour.

I wish I would have done more long bike training, but I feel pretty good about my swim and run preparation. Wish me luck!

Also, random public service announcement:

I had to go to nearby Ann Arbor to get my iPhone fixed because I dropped it on pavement and smashed the screen.  As I was leaving, the Genius Bar guy told me to "make sure to put a case on it." I had a case on it when it smashed, but I realized that it was a newer case that did not wrap around the front like my old case. I think this might be why it smashed. I liked the lower profile and the sleekness of the new case, but I just ordered another case like my old one in case it could potentially solve future smashing incidents (which cost $200 to fix). Just thought I'd put that out there -- if I can prevent an expensive problem with a $13 piece of rubber, I'm all for it.
