THE ONLY THING THAT STANDS BETWEEN A PERSON AND WHAT THEY WANT IN LIFE IS THE WILL TO TRY IT AND THE FAITH TO BELIEVE IT POSSIBLE.
This the motivation that is tacked to my office wall where I can see it while I work. It is right next to the calendar that has a countdown of the number of days until Big Sur.
As you might be able to tell, the map is the Big Sur Half Marathon course map. In 44 days, my Pokey behind will be seen dragging itself along this course in a somewhat-hopefully-respectable-but-doubtful fashion. Luckily I will have two other side kicks (Micheline and Lisa) to help me along.
I am nowhere near prepared for this, yet for some reason I am not yet intimidated by the thought. I am okay with where I am - and if it means I walk a large portion, so be it. The fun will be had in spending quality time (3ish hours) with 2 friends that I rarely get to see, and the ultimate accomplishment of simply finishing a distance that a year and a half ago would have been unfathomable to me.
So mentally, I am ready. The physical part is still yet to be determined.
Tomorrow I have another run on the books with the Charlie's Angels gang, minus Angie :( but plus a friend of Lisa's. :) Pat and Lisa are planning on 10 miles; I am planning on 6.
I do need a 10-miler in a couple weeks guys (hint, hint). But for tomorrow if I can manage another 6 miles, all will be well in my world.
