the day before...





Right now I am laying in a hotel room at the Maui Prince, wearing recovery tights, and watching college football waiting for the World Series to get underway. Not exactly what most think of doing when traveling to a tropical island, but it's what I need to be doing.

Yesterday was a long day of travel and fortunately very uneventful. Everything arrived in one piece and there were no delays. When I landed in Honolulu I had a voicemail from my sister saying she was over the day to day grind and just bought a ticket to maui and booked a room at the host hotel, the famous Maui Prince. So that's why I am here and not crashing on a sofa bed in a condo with some of my friends. I'm stoked she made the crazy decision to head over... as always.

Today has been super mellow. I woke up, had some rad coffee, a good breakkie, and then headed out the door for the race site to in my race prep workouts and check-in. Again, everything went very smooth and I was even able to con my way into a 5 hour early check in at the hotel... stoked!

where things will get started tomorrow at 9am.


that's it... I can't wait to race tomorrow. Here's another quote from RAD that pretty much somes up tomorrow.

Sergeant Smith: "Cru, remember the lumber yard...go balls out."


Bring on (my) Helltrack!!!
