“Never squeeze a wet bar of soap….?”””

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!!!
