1 Comment

You may be wondering what on earth I’m doing with all my time in Lake Placid before the big event Sunday…

Well, here is my schedule (same one I posted on the house fridge yesterday!):


  • Pick up house keys and settle in
  • Race check in – sign some waivers, get weighed, pick up race numbers and timing chip, and get Community Fund swag.
  • Bike Ride – Ride the run course and stop by High Peaks Cycle Shop for last minute maintenance
  • Round One Team Stropedogg Arrivals – Mom and Dad (and the dog Serendipity)
  • Dinner with Mom, Dad, and Team RA3 (JJ, Jim, Colin, Betsy, and Tom – plus their support crews!)


  • 7:30 am – Swim one loop
  • 8:00 am – Community Fund Breakfast
  • 10:00 am – Expo opens…wander around tents and town
  • 5:30 pm – Athlete’s dinner
  • 7:30 pm – Mandatory race meeting
  • Round Two of Team Stropedogg Arrivals – Seth, Sharon, Evie, Beth and Darcie


  • Race bag and bike drop off!
  • Round Three Team Stropedogg Arrivals – Mona, Andrew and Sherry!
