pappas2.jpgThe two most common feelings I feel before a race are enthusiasm and nerves. My enthusiasm stems from the hope that the race will go as planned. My nerves stem from the anxiety that it might not. The only thing I know for sure before a race is when the starting gun will go off.

In a lucky world, the race will go exactly as planned. I will be able to carry out the exact race plan I meticulously crafted with my coach or in my head. The sun or shade will be agreeable too, and shine or not shine at just the right angles and quantities. My race bib number will be my favorite number.
