So here it is, the best diet ever:
I've arranged the first 55 miles of each bike course (Ironman Coeur D'Alene and Ironman St. George, respectively) side-by-side. Click, and enjoy. I mean, I don't know about you, but I want to throw up just looking at it.
I figure if I post it on the refrigerator it will reliably take away my appetite and I'll be lean and mean by September.
September...but Geekgirl, isn't Ironman St. George in May?
Ah, yes. It IS! you see, I have reneged on my plan to not doing an iron distance in 2009. My name is GeekGirl Iron Misty, and I'm an addict.
Thank you for registering for the 2009 Redman Full Distance Triathlon.

The Redman is where I did my first half iron, and I always wanted to come back and do the full. It's small, great shwag, and I remember the support being fantastic. Plus, you can packet pickup on the day before the race, which is on Saturday.
Win-win! We'll see.
I also remember it being incredibly hilly. Of course, that was in 2006 when I was just a triathlon infant.
Now when I look at the profile, I realize that it's all relative.
