It's time to look within Ange. Time to shut out the rest of the world and stop worrying about what if. You have worked hard for this. FOr a long long long long time. You started training when you were 8. No...not for an Ironman. Not even close. But you entered the world of competitive sports and became the person you are today. Everyone has a talent. A gift. Some have many talents. This is yours. My Mom and Dad bestowed good genes upon me to use my body. I may be a clutz, but when it's time to move athletically, I can do it. Be confident. Remember when you were at summer swim team practice in college? Remember talking to that guy about running a marathon. Do you remember when you said, " there is NO WAY I could do that. I can't imagine." Well, since then, you've done 6. I'm not going to list it all...you know.
This is another massive undertaking. it's going to be hard. But Ange---you are strong. you are fit. YOu have done the training. You care. You are determined. You will NOT give up. You never give up.
I don't know what the day will bring. I don't know how the legs will feel. I don't know the other competitors. I do know what I can do. Tomorrow is my turn. My turn to go out and do what I know how to do.
Believe in it. Go for it. Enjoy it.
