Lunch- 6 with the guys. Experimented with my sun arm sleeves that supposedly cool you when wet. Tried them on and off- not sure it makes much of a difference. It would if you could fill them with ice, that's for sure.
Sometimes before races I'm excited. Sometimes I'm determined to win or place high. Sometimes I have a pit in my stomach (not sure why... but those races usually don't end up well). Sometimes I'm ambivalent, indifferent. I'd say the last one is how I'm feeling this time. I think it's how I felt before Pinhoti, too, and is somewhat a reflection of increased racing experience.
