This week I have felt all the expected taper craziness.
My emotions are zippy –
There is an encouraging voice in my head through it all, though. Reminding me that this insanity is “normal.” Assuring me that I am doing all the right stuff and that I will arrive at the Start Line ready to realize my dream.
I’m fully aware of the pain I am about to face. I’m completely ready to step up to the challenge and make my dreams a reality.
I am preparing for battle.
Everything will be put on the line. I will not give up. I will fight to the finish. I will pursue my dream with relentless passion and grit.
10 days from now I will meet my hero, and it will be me.
