We have finally settled into the routine on waking up at 10am and going to bed at 2am-the next day. I know it sounds crazy but thanks to NBC, preliminaries will start at 1pm (local time) and finals start at 10pm so we had to push our start time during the day back a little. It's taken us a full week but I think we have it down now.

Practice this morning was our last in São Paulo. I kept having this reoccurring thought that I want to leave here knowing that we were absolutely prepared for Rio. So we put our racing suits on one last time and set the touchpads up for accurate time, and we raced! Now I can't wait to get to Rio!

We had two more things to do before we leave. Full team photo and haircuts, and we nailed both! I think we look ready.


I'll be blogging from the village from tomorrow on so look out for some cool pics and inside village info!
