Let's Go Tri!!!!

Alright people. I am SO excited to be putting on this race tomorrow. I got a few nasty e-mails including one that concluded,
"I'm sorry to be so mean in this e-mail but you deserve it"
I almost started crying and asked one of my GSA partners to write back to him because I would have told him what he deseves is a slap in the face.

I have had a blast getting ready for this race. I am excited for the extra involvement. I have done everything in my power to accomodate everyone. I might be fired after this becasue I had to send my boss an e-mail telling him I couldn't do physics work until Sunday night and I still haven't heard back from him. I might not sleep tonight but that's ok. I have spent the last two days solid working on this......and yes I still deserve a really really nasty e-mail. Bite Me. Most people have been really nice about the race though and understanding so that's good news.

After this event I am sending my resume to the Chicago Marathon Organizers (and if you -the Chicago Marathoner organizers are reading should hire me...I'm really good!)

Ok, here's to a few hours sleep, a good tri race day and a 7 mile with 8x100 (yes I'm going to fit that in dammit :-) )

In my best Stephanie Tanner voice...(oh you know it's coming)...HOW RUDE!!

OK, these are physics geeks that are being mean to you? Tell them that you don't listen to crap from people that live in their mom's basement.

If they don't like it, send 'em this way...I'll give 'em a little ghetto love. :)

Hey susan-

I didn't do the triathlon, I just organized it all.

Both the race and the run went off really well! More later as this chica needs to nap.

Glad to hear it went well. What a crap e-mail to send to the organizer of an event!

Make sure you keep that nasty email. Might come in handy one day ;)

Congratulations on a successful event.  It's too bad you had to contend with nastiness, but at least you had a good experience overall.

I hope you'll organize more races in the future.
