Let me give you a little background first. This past month leading up to Branson 70.3 Ironman has been STRESSFUL!! The hubs has had an Achilles issue (you can read about it here) and I've been over doing it with training, teaching classes, work, yada yada. Totally MY fault too! That being said, all hell broke lose the day before we were suppose to leave. I almost didn't go, eek! But after a lot of tears, tantrums, and hugs, everything was okay. I ended up going a day later fully ready to GET AWAY!!! I needed to be there to support my hubs, feed him good nutritious food, and make him feel relaxed. It was so worth it too.
Lets starts off the with plane ride. I flew AIR BRANSON and it was a super small plane, at first I was skeptical!
|hello green pastures and rolling hills!|
Since I arrived Saturday and the race was Sunday, it was straight to swim practice, pro meeting (for the hubs), and registration. Then it was off for an early dinner and BED.

3:45am came all to quickly but you can't beat the sunrise over the Chateau Hotel.
And just down the hill was the swim start.
After I saw the pros take off, I ran up the hill to the car and went to find a spot where I could seem them pass on the bike. And boy did they come flying by on that bike!
After that we jumped on our flight totally relaxed. Best way to fly!! Home sweet home! Thanks Branson for a fun time. Cheers to all the race crew, volunteers, and athletes who participated this past weekend. It was a blast!
Congrats to Kelly, Brent, Lovato, Hoffman, TJ, and Natasha for an excellent race!
Who is your cheerleader?
