Yesterday I arrived safely and without incident in Orlando, Florida, as did my support crew (a.k.a. Mom).  I got in a quick shake out run with a little thunder, lightning, and rain for company.  It was actually quite nice given the obscenely dry conditions I have been in for the past five months living in the deserts of the American Southwest.  The thick and steamy air instantly reminded me of Kona. Oh, how I miss Kona. But I digress.

Tomorrow morning I finally get to kick off my 2011 season.  Excited, nervous, anxious, uncertain, etc... all the emotions and feelings are pulsing through me right now.  I'll feel better when the canon fires.

Thanks to all of you who have followed along, read this blog, offered advice, suggestions, or just support and encouragement as I battled my achilies injury and the lack of fitness that resulted. It meant a great deal to me.
