It’s nearly 10pm here in Budapest, my food and snacks are made and ready for tomorrow, my swim bag is packed, and I’m as ready as I’m going to get for my first international open water swim race tomorrow!
The schedule has changed and changed again. It might be postponed, it might be cancelled, the conditions will likely be horrible (huge gusting winds so strong they’ve actually already changed the course), but hopefully everything will work out in the end and we will get to swim!
It’s been a long, hard road to get to this point, but I’m finally here. Thanks so much to all my friends who have put up with me for the last year and helped me get here, either in the pool, on the run, or on the bike: I couldn’t have done it without your support and encouragement!
