Well, I pulled the tent out of the closet without too many boxes falling on my head and I found the Thermarest and the most important item for Wildflower: earplugs. I'm doing the Long Course Saturday for the 2nd time and looking forward to relatively moderate temperatures. Nothing will compare with the first year I watched Wildflower when it was well over 100--I was retreating under the shade and I wasn't even competing. I'm looking forward to meeting up with Bill C. and Peter N. and teammates on my tri team. I don't know how many athletes there are but it is in the thousands and it is one huge camping party--with the exception that most people will be in bed nice & early on Friday night.
I'm not sure if I'll go with the Levemir that I've been using or get back on my pump or do some combination; in the spirit of living on the edge, maybe I'll the ignore the (very good) advice, "Nothing new on race day!"
