If you’ve never flown out of Long Beach on JetBlue, I would highly recommend it — it took a total of 10 minutes from the time I parked at the offsite lot to when I sat down at the gate.Â Also, the flights are pretty comfortable — more legroom (although I don’t really need it), and 36 channels of DirecTV.Â
I keep feeling like I forgot something important (like my shoes), but am trying not to think about it since it’s too late at this point.Â I did (finally!) make a travel/race checklist though, that I hope will come in handy during the rest of my season, but then again, I may have forgotten to put everything on there that I’m going to need.Â Well…I’ll find out soon enough I suppose.
So I have 3 goals, depending on how things go during the race.Â My ideal “things can’t get any better” goal will be 22 hours.Â If my splits start slipping (say that fast 3 times), then my second goal is sub-24.Â Then finally, if I end up doing a death march, then it’s going to be the obvious 28 hour cutoff to finish.
Ok…plane’s boarding soon.
Starting to get the pre-race jitters now…
