the final countdown…

Apr, 29, 2019
OK I’m freaking out a tiny bit…  The countdown is on: six days until I run a full marathon and ten until I leave for Spain.  I take full responsibility.  I love to find the next thing before I’ve completed a project.   The marathon definitely became a project.   It was a stressful, tiring and frustrating project. I am determined to finish the race Sunday.  Should I fail, which I won’t, I always have the Camino Primitivo.  I spent the past four months practicing for the marathon. I’m out of training time.  I did a pre-pack… for the Camino, not the marathon. In reflection, I see I’ve done some avoidance.  This is glaringly obvious to me but only now as I write it down.  The lesson of the day, write something each day and I may learn something about myself and the world. I am as ready as I’ll be for Sunday…right after I pack for race day.
