I was both excited and nervous leading into this race. I would let my mind take over and create all these fake outcomes such as a DNF, panicking in the water, flatting on the bike or not being able to finish the bike because of the difficulty.

It has been a long time of preparation and getting this blog and my website up and running and I am so excited to finally figure out my direction and getting the process moving.
