Notes: I was ready to race even though I was very nervous. I remember swimming under the Olympic Rings and feeling so relieved that I had achieved what I set out to do. It was an amazing feeling to be in that pool, exactly how I wanted it to be. I remember not sleeping well the night before my race because I was so excited. I was up late writing emails to people who supported my goal, silly but true.
