Game Day, Baby, Game Day


So that sums up my feelings at this point.  The last five months of effort will be evaluated over ~six hours tomorrow.  Sort of like spending hours wrapping gifts and watching them get torn open in about five minutes.  Or spending all day cooking a great meal that gets eaten in an hour.

No matter what the outcome, I am thrilled and excited about what I've accomplished.  I'm in the best shape of my adult life.  I know more about sports nutrition than ever before.  I've trained hard and I stuck with the plan even though it was an all consuming bitch.

So on to the happy thoughts.  Tomorrow I'm going to execute the shit out of my plan and have the race that I know I'm capable of!

Goals in priority order:
1) Finish
2) Don't walk during the run
3) Hurt
4) Put EVERYTHING out there, don't leave anything on the table
5) Finish in under 6 hours
6) Have fun

I know that have fun should be a higher priority, but right now I'm not looking at it that way.  I will have fun during setup and after the race - no doubt, but during the race my focus will be about executing, not about fun.

Best of luck to everyone else who is racing this weekend, I hope you are able to get it done and do yourselves proud.
