97 days until THE race

Can I do it?  Can I earn this tri top?

There are exactly 97 days before this race in San Juan, Puerto Rico and it is a total of 70.3 miles.  The longest race, by a lot, I'll even attempt to complete.  It's a huge goal - something I'm not sure I can even complete but my NLLP and my coach seems to think I can do it.  All you need in life is someone to believe in you when you don't have enough belief in yourself.  So I'm going to give it a try.  On top of being a very difficult race, extremely hard to train for through a miserable North East winter - it's very expensive (feel free to donate here - just kidding!).  That means I need to overcome my craziness in all aspects of my life: belief in myself to complete the entire race in under 8 hours, the drive to train for the next 97 days and the will to save enough money to pay for the whole trip.  This will be big for me and an enormous accomplishment if I can make it happen.  The only problem is that, I'm the only one that can truly make it happen.  I much prefer asking someone else to do my hard work and/or blaming them when things don't work out...any volunteers?
