My Attempt to Attend Ironman Arizona

Ahhh the joys of flying space available.

My beloved husband is wonderful.  Because he works for the airlines, I get the chance to fly space available anywhere US Airways goes.  Since my coach, Hector, is running Ironman Arizona AND I have a weekend where ALL of my friends seem to be busy, I thought I would head out to Phoenix and watch the race.  I am a firm believer that you can learn so much from observing a race and it would be a blast to take some great shots of the Central Florida Tri Club members who are running this Ironman.

On Tuesday, things were looking good.  25 seats left on the flight with 8 people listed for space available.  Last  night, I checked again.  Only 3 seats left with 8 people listed.  YIKES!!  I need to decided if I am going to get up at the crack of dawn on Saturday and make the attempt to get this flight or just stay in Orlando.  Ill keep you posted, and if I make it, Ill post a few photos from Tempe AZ!! 

CROSS YOUR FINGERS!!

Get up and get to the airport. Otherwise you will always wonder if you "could" have gone. Better to "tri" and not get on the plane that find out later you could have!
