Long drive to Wine Country: Check.
Leaving at 9am allowed us to avoid most of the insane traffic that plagues Highway 101 north of San Francisco, but it still took us about 2.5 hours.
Short brick workout: Check.
The river water felt – in my opinion – wetsuit legal but still warm enough to be quite comfortable. I’m excited to get in there tomorrow!
Race check-in and expo: Check.
Thankfully the longest expo line ever went by quickly and we were checked in! I am going to be very happy to see this finish line tomorrow.
Race meeting with friends: Check.
Pre-race packing/organizational panic: Check.
It’s all been pulled together, packed, and is ready!
Gnomey antics: Check.
Obligatory pre-race photo of Chris with her gnome: Check.
Catch you on the flip side, gnomies! Tomorrow is going to be great fun!
