I can't even relax. I'm heading out in a few minutes to WYC to catch the carpool up to Kailua. And then we race. My body is caught in this weird mix of apprehension and excitement. The adrenalin is there, but so is something else, that whatever it is that carries anxiety.
So this is the day. The past two days - shoots, maybe the whole week - have been prep for this. We'll set out from Kailua at 9am, paddle around Makapu`u, Hanauma, and Diamond Head, and hopefully land in Waikiki shortly past noon. I'm as ready as I'll be.
