Enough said. The funeral service went well. My grandmother was a good person and will be greatly missed. I didn't shed a tear, but I was close a couple times. Grandma hasn't been well for over 12 years now. This made it easier for me because she has been suffering for a long time.
My grandmothers last words were: "Come and get me Jesus, I have suffered long enough". Pretty amazing, especially that she hasn't spoke for so long.
My training went pretty well while I was gone. I ran several times. I woke up early, twice, before a long car drive.

My first and third run were in Grain Valley, Missouri. We stayed there both times and I ran about the same area. It is pretty funny to see that I ran at the same time too. I brought all my running gear with me, including my headlight.
I feel very blessed. I have discovered that I am doing all this triathlon and stuff because "I can". This may seem silly, but it's true. I have the ability and the will to keep myself healthy, fit and love life. THANK YOU for all your prayers!!!
Now its back to the pool and bike! Yeah!

Well, my bike is in the shop for a tune up, so I wasn't going to ride it until at least Wednesday. I am extremely dedicated like many other triathletes. I am still not sure how much training I will get in. I might wake up extremely early and go running?? At least I can run and do my exercises.
My Grandma was awesome. I have many great fond memories of her and the times we traveled to South Carolina (at least 16 times). We went to places like Disneyland, Myrtle Beach, DC, and so many others. My grandma would always say "come give your grandma some sugar". She will be missed. I haven't cried yet...but I am sure it might be coming?
I have done over a dozen 10k races, but the majority of them are the Boulder Bolder. It has been many years since I have run a really great race in BB. I always get sick and end up feeling crappy for half the day. Things have changed since I started triathlon and my core exercises. I only feel tired...which I think is very normal. I may cough a little too, but nothing serious.
My predict time was under 41:00 minutes. My PR for the BB was 42:23. If I run well, I will finish with a PR.
The race went well and I got a PR. I ran the race in exactly 41:00. I was pretty happy and missed my predict time by about 15 seconds. Not to bad.
