Pre-race routine:

Got up early had breakfast and hit the road to Lincoln. Had everything packed the night before, so it was pretty easy to get up and out the door. Sipped on some gatorade on the way to Lincoln.

Once I got to the race site I racked my bike, hit the porta potties, and got checked in. Chatted with friends until the pre-race meeting.

Walk down to the beach.

As the fog cleared, the buoy that I first saw earlier in the morning was just the first marker in a very long line of buoys that stretched across the lake like a runway for a 747 jetliner.
