A new wrinkle in my Ironman Registration
As you all know, I've had this Ironman on my mind for some time. I had the Ironman 2012 volunteer sign up date on my calendar so I could be one of the first ones to sign up. Since I was early I had my pick of volunteer assignments and was ready to go. Everything was going according to plan.
What I didn't factor into the mix was a new job! I have a great new opportunity BUT guess what my start date is?! Ironman Registration day! 11/21!! UGH! I have to be to work at 7:30 right when registration starts. WHY?! WHY?!! Darn my luck!
I briefly (only briefly) considered seeing if I could change my start date or time until after I registered but realized I was being CRAZY! I now have a back up plan.
BACK UP PLAN: I will have to take my personal laptop to work and be ready to go once it opens up. Hopefully I can time it just right! I can see it now. "Sorry, I know this orientation is very important but the Ironman is a priority! I must excuse myself now." Hmmm. Bathroom break? Lunch break? I'll have to get the timing down just right.
