The title of this post is a total lie. I am making way more than one list, and I am checking it way more than twice. And by more than one list I mean over 6 lists so far regarding packing, prepping and planning for Ironman. Additional lists because it is an Ironman out of the country with a vacation tacked onto the end.
I had a list of items I needed to buy before leaving (check!).
I have a list of what I need to pack for the race layed out to when I will need it. Pre race, swim, T1, Bike special needs bag, T2, run special needs bag, post race.
|just a few things of the many on the list|
I have a list of things to pack for the vacation part of the trip because lets not forget that after the race I get to spend 5 more days in sunny Cozumel rehydrating with margaritas and nachos.
I have a list of all of the food I want to either bring or buy there.
I have a list of what needs to be done every day from the morning I arrive on Thursday to the morning of the race on Sunday.
I have a list of tasks that need to be done before I leave for the trip.
Lists, upon lists, upon lists. They are neatly organized into a google spreadsheet and color coated by category. Me? Type A? No way.
Are you a list maker for big events? Any suggestions on how to further organize myself?
