Vineman 70.3

I'm in California getting ready to do the Vineman half IM tomorrow. 21st Century Mom will be attempting her first half! woo-hoot!
Today we went for a really short ride, put our feet in the Russian River (where we'll swim) and got our race numbers. We drove the bike course, too - it's all these winding narrow streets through the vineyards and is soooo scenic! I will have my camera and should get lots of pictures. 
My race number is 745. If Pamela needs support, (and she says she does!!) we will be together the whole day. (I am "racing" at Chisago Half Ironman next weekend, so it's totally OK if I do this race as "support".) Pamela's number is 819. But if she gets grumpy and sends me along, I will go on!!

My husband and I went all over this part of CA on our honeymoon 13 years ago, so it is really neat to be back here, and seeing a lot of familiar sights.

We are off to check our run stuff (two separate transition areas several miles apart) and dinner - then race starts for us at 7:18 a.m.

I'll post again later!
