Off to the Races!!
Well I am leaving for Tempe in about ten minutes, the culmination of about 15 months of training and focus.
There is too much to say right now. But in future posts I will go into great detail about:
Pre-Race Jitters and Anxiety
Packing and Contingency Planning
Nutrition and Hydration Strategy
The Connundrum and risk-reward of "Racing vs. Finishing"
In summary, I am still extremely anxious and cannot explain exactly why.
I am however, confident and prepared, knowing full-well that I have put the time and miles in, and I know I will pass this test and complete the race.
A lot more to say about all of this, but that will have to wait for about a week.
Thanks for all of the support along the way.
The rest is up to me.
