On the evening before most big events, things intensify.
Tonight is no different. It’s like New Years Eve, Graduation Eve, and Christmas Eve all rolled into one.
Tomorrow, I will not need anything except energy.
I will not need a wallet.
I will not need a car.
I will not have a cell phone or blackberry with me.
I will be alone, with 2,500 athletes and 5,000 volunteers, and hundreds of great friends - and many more soon to be great friends - hopefully for around 11 – 14 hours.
Thank God I arrived at the start healthy and injury free.
Tomorrow, my friend Jessiqa Pace will try to update the blog a few times during the day – but you can always check in on race day with Ironman Live or you can track my long day by clicking here --> Track Mitch on the Ironman Course.
