The last 16 hours have given me two huge reality checks.
Last night was Send Off, which was our final meeting before everyone leaves for event weekend. It was a night for last minute instructions, and we got the rundown of everything that's happening while we're in San Diego.
Reality Check 1
We received packets of information, bonus gifts that we got for fundraising incentives, and last but not least - the most important thing inside the pack:
We received the shirts that we are going to wear for our race. Seeing it, touching it, holding it - it became real. This is actually happening.
Reality Check 2
I just arrived in San Diego. 3 days til race day. Ready or not, it's coming!
