My legs are feeling good and there is an inner calm, an slight anticipation. I try not to think about the race too much, but the excitement creeps in when I least expect it. Like my pace at the start of a race, I have to slow down, focus on what I am doing right here and now. Focus, so that I can be as prepared as possible when I line up for stage 1.
Added to the challenge of racing is taking care of my family. With the wife in school, I will be dropping the kid of at his school several mornings before the drive out to Brevard. A couple of days will see me rolling into the parking area 10 minutes before the start of the race, but that's life. I'm thankful I get to race again this year.
