Mike W. and I depart for Lubbock in the morning, about a four hour drive from Fort Worth.
We'll pick up our race packets, scope out the course for the first time, get in a short practice swim, and go over our last gear checks before a 4:30 a.m. rise and shine Sunday morning.
We've to a 6:40 a.m. wave start Sunday morning.
We're both a bit nervous about this race. Mostly just jitters, I think. Wish us luck!
