Nothing Left To Do...

... but "GO!"

Rode a portion of the bike course early this morning... yeah... it's hilly. Followed that with a quick, snappy run and that was that. Ready.

Spent the rest of the day hangin around staying off my feet and hydrating. Packet pick-up started at 11 am and was followed by the athlete meeting at 1:00. After that, put my race numbers in their proper places, gave the bike a once over, got my transition bag together, and that's that. There's literally nothing else I can do to get myself ready. Maybe I could have done more in the previous weeks... but I didn't... and what I have, has to be enough. About this time doubt starts to enter my head. I guess that's a natural process that we all go through... the question is... what do you do with it. Me? Nothing. I let those thoughts sit... exactly where they are... and ignore them. I think about the stuff I can control... and that's it... which aint a whole lot really. We like to think we can control things... but we can't... so... you let go.

I've let go...

Breathe...
