And the race when you don't even get kicked once on the swim (Ok - now you are just thinking crazy thoughts :)
Well, let's back up.... is there even such a thing as a perfect training session?
"It's going to be awesome girl! I'll be tracking all day sending lots of good vibes. You Got This! Mind and body are in sync and ready to go!" - Gloria, my mental coach and BFF
Before we went to the water, we put on our wetsuits at the top of the helix and gave the pump to Ed. We said our goodbyes to Ed (see ya at the finish!) and bathed ourselves in body glide. Karel kept his old socks on to toss by the water and I walked barefoot. We each had a throw away bottle of sport drink to sip on and toss before we got into the water.
See ya at the finish line he says...3,2,1...BOOM!!!
A volunteer grabbed my bike and as he was doing it I put on my shoes. I grabbed my bike, turned on my bike computer and then ran past Karel's bike and then to the mount line.
