First Olympic start completed. With moderate success. I’m not happy with the race, but not too disappointed either. I had a great first half and then thought too much…thats a first ;). My start was quick and i was sitting a comfortable second going through the five. I won’t say i panicked but i did have a moment where i let up far too much and allowed the German and Cuban to pass me. I should have finished second and relatively easily could have. I feel good about having to race a semi. I am sure it’ll be a good thing to get another race under my belt prior to that final.
All is well and spirits are high. I think the team as a whole is alright with today. I think most of them feel like i do and are confident with racing in the semis.
