We Have Arrived!!!

Uh huh. Its real. I'm here. WOW!

Ok... so Aggie and I piled into the car and started our drive up to Coeur D'Alene at 9 am this morning. We hooked up with Erich in Mosier, OR (which is actually where my wedding was held... at a little bed n breakfast... in a cherry orchard... with 200 of our closest friends... wine and beer were consumed in massive quantities... boy was THAT a long time ago!). You guys know Erich right? He's a young dork... but we love him. Anywho. The remainder of the drive was spent listening to music and podcasts, talking with a close friend that is ALMOST as excited as I am about the race... mmm hmmm... and sending random obnoxious texts to my beloved Coach Liz!

We arrived at our rental house around 6 ish and unloaded our copious amounts of crap. After that we cruised down to the race site, (about a mile away), found some grub, walked the race site, dipped our feet in the water, and went to the G store! See? Exciting huh? Aren't you GLAD to hear all of this?
I'm a little giddy at the moment. Difficult to contain myself actually. Its been SUCH a long road for me... and now I'm here... I'm really here. WHEW! Man. Robby tired. Robby need sleepy. Robby might need medicine to go sleepy.

Thanks for taking the time to read! Hope you're all happy, healthy, and whole! If you're racing this weekend too... no matter what the distance... dig in... get ready... oooooooohhhhhh yeah.

Stay tuned ok? More tomorrow!

Missed you the past couple of weeks.
Giddy is the way to put it! Your heart is racing, you have a huge ass smile, and you just can't wait to get into that water.
You have trained hard and you are ready to seize the moment. Get ready to conquer.
Good luck, have fun, and of course remember to breathe. Wish I could be up there to root for you but down in Cali with the family.
Rock On Dude!
