Yikes!!! Am loosen it…
Being so preoccupied with my up coming marathon, my mind has exhausted any rational thought. Fear of injury / sickness has found me in a place of irrational scrutiny. A minor slip from a curb screams “SH$#$!!! …this is it…” – Fist bump Greetings are less worrisome then full-blown handshakes for sure. Any one of my Grandchildren could be patient “ZERO”…. “Never squeeze a wet bar of soap….?” WHAT??? How did this get into my head?
Ok, OK calm down…You put the time in and as they say it’s the journey -” There is no starting or stopping – only doing”
Whew!! I have enjoyed the build up to my marathon. The long runs on Sunday mornings with fellow runners have been (are) so looked forward to…There are only 2 weeks left until the destination arrives. My last long run behind me – a 15 mile run tomorrow seems tame.
It’s the journey!!!
