Only one more day until the Open Water World World Championships begin! We are all very excited about starting the competition and having a few great 5K's. Yesterday was fairly uneventful but we had a great time lounging around the hotel between training sessions.
We split our training between the pool and the beach and saw some really amazing things out of everyone on the team, which gives us great hope about what's to come for us in competition. We get to go to the venue at where we will be competiting for a training session tonight which will help us learn exactly what the race course will be like, where the feeding stations and where the finish will be. Practice makes perfect and we're going to practice aiming in for our finishes and turns around the buoys, hopefully a great advantage for TEAM USA! The race water has been fairly smooth so far, not too wavy but rough at times depending on how many boats are near. More about the race site next time.
