Well, here we are. Two nights to go. The Marathon is upon us on Sunday.
It’s a weird bit of butterflies I feel, half excitement, half terror. I have absolutely no doubt we can, and will finish. I have no doubt that all who run with us will finish strong.
Training for the marathon I learned that I could live beyond myself and destroy my limitations. I fear no limits once this particular goal is achieved.
I have lost more than thirty pounds (!). I am in strong cardiovascular shape (even if I have to get back to martial arts training so that I can use it to my advantage). I am the new Lizard King.
Eye of the Tiger, baby. Eye of the Tiger. I can’t wait to write about the experience.
But now I seek out that little bit of peace and calm. That inner core wherein I will find that one word that focuses me and makes me strong.
Be calm. Be at peace. Be Yoda.
Now, to rest. A day to spend, watching movies I must.
Hmmm…now, whatever watch will I?
