Thank you to anyone who has been subjected to an endless tirade of nervous nonsense from me recently. I'll admit it, it's true - I fall to pieces the week before a race. I start doubting myself and my abilities. I have at least one mini-breakdown and plenty of rants and raves ensue. These phrases, and many others like them, leave my mouth at regular intervals in any given day:
- What was I thinking even signing up for this?
- I haven't trained enough!
- I'm not going to finish!
- I've got to be crazy believing I can do this...
Well, the big moment is finally here - we leave for Orlando at 6:30 tomorrow morning. So the blog will be silent for a few days... Don't worry, it may be quiet for a while, but I'll do a race report as soon as I can after we get back.
So the point of this post is really to give a huge big THANK YOU to everyone who's been here for me, in any capacity, the last 4 months. And an even bigger thank you to anyone who's put up with me recently, offering your support and encouragement. I really love you guys, and couldn't have done it without you!
