It’s now time to put all my training, planning and effort to work. No more sleeping in a tent that simulates altitude, it’s time for the real thing.
You never know what you’re capable of without a test. This is my test.
Leaving is never easy. In fact, it’s really damn hard. This morning was tough. It’s hard to say goodbye to my kickass wife under normal circumstances. Saying goodbye to a pregnant Mary Beth was even harder. I’m so excited to get back and see what’s changed and how she’s come along. Hopefully I’ll see the baby kick when I get home!
I have awesome parents too, that got up at the butt crack of dawn, just to say goodbye. Even my father in law got up, even though he’s got to rest for his intense tournament :).
Who knew I’d be so appreciative of a coffee from Starbucks? That’s what the prospect of being gone for 6 weeks will do.
I feel like I’m in better shape than I’ve ever been. Thanks to my main man Paul Roberts and his disciples from the amazing project: Gym Jones.
I’m acclimatized thanks to Hypoxico.
I’m ready for this test thanks to my awesome family, friends and coworkers.
Time to let er’ rip!
