Its 7:30am and my alarm goes off- but I'm already wide awake. I've been awake since 6am. Today is the day. Finally! I get to race the 10,000m at the Olympic Games. I slept surprisingly well for the night before a big race. I usually only manage 3 or 4 hours of sleep, but last night I got 6 or 7. As I turn my alarm off, my roommate Krista, says good morning. She's already awake too. We chat for a few minutes- she's excited for my race, and asking me how I slept and how I'm feeling. I'm excited!!!! I can't believe today is finally here.
