Hello, Lubbock

Super quick update tonight before bed…

We’re here!  Mama Katz and I hit the road from COS this morning and arrived in Lubbock at about 5p CST.  The drive was, thankfully, uneventful and this town is just as I remember.  We’ve already been to Wal-Mart (sketch) and are all settled in to the hotel for the rest of the week.

I know Sunday is the real “big day” in this whole scenario, but for me, tomorrow is what will make or break me even getting to the start line.  We’re getting up early, heading to the park and I’m facing down that damn hill that took me out last year.  It really is the most important thing I will do all week.

It’s about as literal as it gets when it comes to staring down your biggest fear, tackling it head on and conquering it with all you have – mind, body and soul.  I know I can go down it without having any issues, but I need to *actually* make it happen so that when I turn the corner to head down it on Sunday, I have the confidence to know I’ll make it down in one piece.

I’m going to have Mama Katz take video of it, so if all goes well, I’ll post that here tomorrow night.

Super excited about the CAF pre-race camp that starts tomorrow, too.  It’s going to be an amazing week.  Stay tuned for updates!

    Hey Katz, I will be at Lubbock producing a triathlon news podcast. How about a meet up at the Expo for a short interview? The podcast is “The Stay Tuned Report” on iTunes. Email me at bbrode @ aol . com

    In any event, have a safe, fast, and fun race.

    – Brian
