Tomorrow is race day.
I’m willingly waking up early, dressing ridiculous and running an incredibly long way.
I have to get up in a few hours to begin the trek to the starting gate. Dressed as Marlin from Finding Nemo, with giant googley eyes and fins glued to my sweat band.
I’ve been anxious as well and I need to remember my training goal:
I have CariAnn and Sarah, cheerleaders extraordinaire, by my side, dressed as Dory who will remind me to “Just Keep Swimming! Just Keep Swimming!” and Nemo to inspire me to chase something worth it! Tomorrow morning, I hope to share victory. I won’t be the fastest by any means and starting from the last corral, but it will be a victory for me.
I hope to demonstrate Olympic Perseverance.
