Mardi Gras 2009 - Pascagoula, Mississippi

Here we go again, down to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, close enough to New Orleans to be in mandatory Mardi Gras Parade Territory. It was another great day for a parade. Lots of interesting people having a great time.

First, you need transportation.

You might get lucky and find a party with boiled crawfish.

Royalty and celebrities are always out to greet their loyal fans.

Animals in attendance:

Bill---The one thing that I have always wanted to do was to experience Mardi Gras.
I love love love your pictures! One of these days....

I also wanted to respond to your post on my blog. I think I am going to stick with my original plan. I feel as though doing another full Ironman is a rushed decision. And, I don't feel like I have anything to prove, and I don't feel like I HAVE to do it. I WANT to do that distance again, but I WANT to do it next year. I have been training for a couple of half irons. I feel really good about it. My IM race was disappointing, but I've had other disappointing races. I guess I want to make the decision for me. I can get pulled into the excitement or I can really focus on being in my best shape physically and mentally before taking on another Ironman.

I think that's a good idea. Don't you?
