I've never even trained as far so it's all uncharted territory, though I have covered most the course by piece-mealing together over the past few days. This helps in one sense in that I know what's coming. Whether that helps or not, I'm not so sure! The turnaround on the bike is nearly 120-kilometers from T2, or roughly 70-miles! That's a long ride in and of itself, but it's only halfway through the bike course at the Leadman 250!
I've also never used special needs (Chuckie jokes they're for "special people") or swam a continuous 5-kilometers. I'm more apprehensive about this than I am about being on terra firma. Lake Mead looks so serene right now but at 6am tomorrow I'm sure I won't even notice. I'll be more concerned with the storm inside my head! If I can weather that, and if I can eat enough, I should be okay.
