I've been training all spring and summer with tomorrow in mind. Spending entire days at the state park riding up and down hills, running in 90% humidity, dragging myself to the pool... it's all over. I can't believe it.
I'm trying to stay calm and remember that the race is really a celebration of my training. I made it to swim practice this morning and splashed around for a bit. I felt good in the water and I hope I can carry that calm with me tomorrow into and out of the water.
I've done this a dozen times so far — tomorrow I just go a little farther than I have before. I know I can do the distances. I just have to put them together.
No turning back now. Here we go.
