The nervousness has finally turned into excitement, with the healthy nervousness remaining. Pete, a fellow Kiwi - a Maori - who lives behind us, married to Lauren, who's currently on a month's contract in the Congo, came around for dinner last night, and showed me all the exercises I should have been doing. Better late than never, and it just got me more excited about next year's Everglades Challenge.
What I am looking forward to, is the four days we'll all have together after the race, exploring the Keys, where none of us has yet visited. I'm packing a mask and snorkel.
