Tomorrow is the big day

I know it's not a very big, or should I say long, race, but it's the first race I've done in a year. My last race was the Na Wahine last September. It's been one year. Up until this point I've been fairly calm until tonight. Now I'm starting to get a little bit nervous.

I've been getting my gear together. I've got:
-swim cap
-goggles
-towels for T1
-water for T2
-socks
-bike shoes
-gloves
-helmet
-bike
-running shoes
-hat
-belt with number
-sunglasses
-Garmin
-water bottles for bike
-snacks in bento box just in case :)
-towel and clothes for after

I think that's it. I can't think of anything else I need. I do believe that I'm ready.

It's exciting to be getting ready to race again. I had thought I wouldn't race this year but realized it's what I need to take my workouts to the next level. After tomorrow I rest on Monday, then Tuesday I crank up the biking again for the Century Ride in 2 weeks. This is so exciting.

Okay, wish me luck. Full report tomorrow.

LUCK! Although by now you might be up getting ready. You can do this. If I can do what I've done, you can do this race. Just keep in mind: continuous forward motion = progress.
