It’s now the day before the race, and I’m trying my best to chill,…but what I really want to be doing right now is racing.  It’s so awesome to think that I’m going to be doing battle tomorrow,…a “war of attrition” a friend called it in a recent email.

I’m staying with a great family here in Coeur d’Alene – they have been amazing.  It’s been great interacting with them which has helped to keep the pre-race tension low.  In the family, little Cole, an 8-year old boy can swim 50m (long course) fly in 36sec!  He’s also swum faster than Michael Phelps over 25yards at the same age (Micheal Phelps did it in 15.18 at age 8, and Cole in 14.89).  Cody, the 15-year old has run a mile on the track in 4min23sec!  They’ve been a lot of fun to hang around.

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads, one day in advance!
