That's it, you're in, you'll get a bib number soon. All you have to do now is get yourself to the starting line.
That feeling, my friends, is one of the greatest feelings there is! (That and finishing a race, feeling absolutely fantastic in a race on a darn tough course, beating a PB best of yours during a regular ol' training session... oh boy the list does go on, doesn't it?)
In any case, I had that very feeling last August when I signed up for IM Canada (for this year, August 2010). Then my hopes were dashed (in a good AND bad way) when I applied (and got accepted) to study in Australia for a year starting July 2010. Well, all the giddy race feelings are back, because I just found out I might be able to do IM Canada after all!! That is, if I even have enough time to train properly and if course scheduling works out perfectly!
It's all up in the air for me right now, but at least I've got my initial dream back: IM Canada 2010!! That's all I can ask for.
Keep you posted...
