Grim determination and the realization that you may get your doors blown off!

But don't let that deter you. Get a number, toe the line, and giver' hell. You'll do just fine and have a BLAST.

Get to the race extremely early and warm up for a good long while.......Nothing is more debilitating (physically and mentally) than feeling like your heart is going to jump out of your chest when you are only on lap 4.
