Thanks for the wishes, friends! I will be OK. Things I worry about, so seldom actually happen.
And once I get my feet on the ground, I've been good at every job I've ever had.
Maybe the same with today's race and the IM: as soon as I get my feet on the ground, I'll be rolling!
Weather looks great, as Nancy posted. The tide, which I'd heard tell would be coming in against us, will actually be slack (in its resting period between going out and coming in) for most of the swim (lakelike, no current), beginning its influx only in our second half, and then gradually. So we shouldn't be like salmon swimming upstream. Sea nettles have gone to the bottom in response to recent rain and cooler temperatures. It should be a nice swim.
And once I get my feet on the ground, I'll be rolling.
Thanks so much to Nancy for her hospitality once again!
