Originally, we'd planned on driving up to NJ this morning (Thursday morning), but yesterday afternoon, I started thinking about driving up at night instead. We left the house at 11 pm last night and arrived at the hotel at 3 am. J drove the entire time, for which I'm extremely grateful! I caught a bit of sleep during the drive, but was still exhausted when we got to the hotel.
Today has been spent sleeping and just relaxing. This is my favorite part of prep.
Earlier this afternoon, I got checked in to the show and received a cool participation medal. I've never gotten one at a show before and think it's a cool gesture for competitors. I kinda feel like I've already won because I've got a medal. :)

Tonight will be spent trying not to mess up my tan (also easier said than done) and just relaxing. Tomorrow at noon is the athletes' meeting, and then pre-judging starts at 2 pm ET. I'm guessing I'll be on stage around 3-4 pm.
Thank you for following my journey and I'll try to post some updates throughout the weekend!
