Follow Me on Sunday!!

You know that feeling of the click-click-clicking up the first hill of a roller coaster after you have waited in line for like an hour? The feeling that says, "Why, why, why are you doing this? What have you done?"

I'm not feeling that at all about race day. I'm ready. I'm rested. I have put in the work, and now it's time to go out there and do it! There will be no free-falling on Sunday. (And, for the record, I get that feeling every single time I go on a scary ride...which I will be doing none of this weekend.)

Am I nervous? Sure I am, but am I regretting my decision to do this. No way. I cannot WAIT!!

I have been fighting off a cold this week (which has probably freaked me out more than the thought of 140.6 miles on Sunday), and today I'm pulling out all the stops. I cancelled everything on my calendar and am spending the entire day in my bed. I might get up this afternoon to wash my bike and pack a little, but that is it until the boys get home from school.

We are heading out to Sandusky tomorrow morning, so I probably won't be posting any blog updates until after the race. I have been getting lots of messages, tweets, emails, phone calls and more from so many people wishing me good luck on Sunday. It is so wonderful to know I have friends behind me in this craziness. My friend, Molly, stopped by yesterday and gave me this beautiful necklace.

It is a little moon and came with a card that said, "Wear this necklace and go for your dreams. They are within your reach." Thank you so much, Molly.

I'm going to get my dream on Sunday. If you would like to follow along with me, you can check out on Sunday. There will be a live finish line feed and you can also track me using my last name, Covert. I think the best way to track is to go to this page and then click on the results tab. Be sure to click on Full Rev for the race and then type my name in. It should have live splits as I go through my day. Kel will also be posting updates to my Twitter and Facebook feed, so you can follow there as well!!

Thank you so much for all the support you have given me this year as I have headed towards this day. It really means a lot to me. Have a great weekend...I know I will!


  1. SO PROUD OF YOU! Enjoy the day! The race is the icing on the training cake!

  2. Kelly, I'm so excited for you. Just remember that you are SO incredibly ready for this and race day (like Kacie said) is just your time to show off how hard you worked. I am so sad that I won't be there in my tent to cheer you on and throw moonpies at you, but I'll be with you in spirit and sending you the most amazingly positive vibes all day. xo

  3. I'm so excited for you Kelly! All the best with the race. I'll be cheering you on from afar!

  4. Best of luck Coach! Kick some 140.6 AZZ!
