The Day Before

It's 7:55 a.m., and I did not sleep well. At one point early this morning, since sleep wasn't coming to me, I mentally practiced my transitions. This activity probably didn't help in the sleep way at all, since my heart rate went up just thinking about it...but at least something was getting done!

I played in the 32X2 concert last night at the Musselfest Arts Triathlon. We premiered 32 new pieces in about 45 minutes. While we played, dancers were dancing, and in the back of the stage artists were creating a huge mural they had been working on since 10 a.m. (my concert was at 6 p.m.). It came off pretty well, I think, given the fact that we (the 5 musicians) rehearsed for the first time from 3:00 to 5:40, directly before the concert. It was really nice for me, because this week would have been a much more difficult week without something like this to take my mind off the race.

So, I woke (and I use that word very lightly, since I wasn't really sleeping) this morning with a growling but nervous stomach. All I have to do before I leave for Geneva at noon, is get my stuff together.

I just wanted to let you know that if you are planning on tracking my race here is the link:

Since this is a test, there is an outside chance that the tracking won't be perfect, but let's keep our fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly, and the test gives us an A+!

Thanks to everyone for your good wishes for my race...I will definitely be thinking of you tomorrow!
