Lately, people have been asking me how I feel knowing that the SFT is not far away. Up until today I didn't know how to answer that because I don't know what to expect, I've never been to the Blue Mts, let alone watch the SFT. Today, though, every now and then the butterflies would start. I'm getting nervous. Saturday is not that far away......

The cross country race this afternoon was good - really enjoyed it. I went out fast, settled down and came home comfortably into quite a brisk headwind. Figured I shouldn't do anything stoopid!

Bring it on.

You've done the hard yards in training, and got a lot of good advice.

Blue Mountains is a great place to visit, especially to soak in the atmosphere of such a great event.

Wow CJ - ignorance is bliss - my only advice is keep your eyes closed near any views on the drive up.

They are only little hills -really ;-)

You are sooooo ready for Six Foot you are going to go great.
