I have a really ugly green towel that I like to put under my bike in transition–I call it my lucky-towel. Also, my accupuncturist told me to breathe 9 times in through the nose and out the mouth because 9 is an auspicious number and well, doing it 9 times seemed lucky enough for me. But probably the biggest thing is that makes me have a really good race is helping someone before or during the race–I’ve loaned goggles, gels, race belt and given friendly words to my competitors. It calms me down to help someone else calm down. After all, aren’t we all in this together? Do you believe in karma?
