Day 1 by Chandler Michael

Day 1

Today, I woke up at 4:30 am to drive to Pocatello ID for Western Regionals. Wow, it was early but once me and my teammates got situated in the van, we were fine. The first few hours were easy and it was fun. After awhile, everyone started to get tired and we slept for about 2 hours. After that, we were all energized and read to go! The good part was lunch at McDonalds–I like me some Micky D’s! After lunch, we headed on to Idaho. The end of the drive was easy because nerves were flying. After 12 hours of traveling, we finally got to The Red Lion Inn Pocatello. Every year the number of Peninsula Wrestlers making the trip has grown and every year the trip has gotten better. Now, all I have to do is make weight, hone in my body and focus my mind. I know that the next six days will be challenging and I know what I have to do–Regionals here I come!
