43.5 for 15 miles which is a PR pace. Shawn beat her Top Gun time
from last year even though this race is a longer swim and 5 extra
miles on the bike.
My enemy is not a competitor or the course, it is my evil inner
committee that clings to the past. They say I didn't train hard
enough, lose enough weight, and that I'm not tough enough to go all
out. I'm worried that I will give in to the pain of the effort and
settle. A course PR is not enough. The 2003 PR is soft. Somehow I have
to settle into my personal pain cave and throw a party there. In the
end, it's not about the time or where I finish in my age group, I will
lose on Sunday if I finish the race thinking "I could have gone
(CNN) -- Americans are being asked to stop whatever they are doing at 3 p.m. local time Monday to share a minute on Memorial Day and honor those who have died in the cause of freedom.
Americans are being asked to take one minute at 3 p.m. Monday to pause and reflect on those who died in battle.
"The time 3 p.m. was chosen because it is the time when most Americans are enjoying their freedoms on the national holiday," according to the White House Commission on Remembrance. Congress established the National Moment of Remembrance.
"The Moment does not replace traditional Memorial Day events; rather it is an act of national unity in which all Americans, alone or with family and friends, honor those who died for our freedom," the Commission on Remembrance said on its Web site.

Ahhhh, maybe next year. :) Actually, my transition times from 2004 are within 40 seconds of her times. That I can fix. I'm close on the bike but the run and 1/2 mile swim need little work. I've never broken 30 minutes on a 5K at the end of a sprint tri and a 20mph bike split for 15 miles would be my best effort. There are some fast bitches in my age group!
Gotta dream big!
