So, it has pretty much unfolded the past few weeks that racing this years Great Floridan IM is not something I'll be able to do.
I've had a great injury free build and now with less than 35 days til taper, unexpected expenses have pretty much stalled my financial ability to compete.
It's a shame that I've been training almost non-stop since last Oct building to a March HIM with the focus being a decent IM effort come Oct 23rd.
I'm still keeping up 90% of my training volume just in case, but I'm not real hopeful, unless a pile of $ drops out of the sky. I can't justify going and deeper into credit card debit as a full time student working 40+hrs AND training for an IM.
The race directors are gonna let me roll my race entry to next years event and said that my entry cost won't be affected if they have to slightly raise the $. So, that's a small bonus I guess.
I guess now I'll set my focus on Tough Mudder in Dec with a Jan Disney marathon and attempt to destroy my HIM time this coming March. Ever onward. Just thought I'd share.
