Wow ! I'm actually going.
The airline tickets have been reserved, the condo reservations are set. Sure, Margit said 'You were always going', and I've been training since August 1st for this race, but to me, when you're talking about a race that's across the country (it's not literally across the country, but close enough), you're not really going until you've bought the tickets and committed to actually go there.
I'm psyched. One more big training week, maybe two, plenty of ice, and let's do this thing.
