The travel planning is done - the preparations are made. My doctor gave me a clean bill of health and her blessing for the race (fyi - my pressure was 128/82 - not bad).
And here and there I'm noticing little touches from unexpected places.
My boss gave me her sponsorship check for the charity fundraising. She'd DOUBLED what she pledged.
People I had no idea knew I was running are wishing me good luck.
And friends are already suggesting my next project. Which I'm in the process of thinking about. Nevertheless, I will continue raising money, and continue running. And I will keep getting leaner and faster. This is a change I've made for life, and strangely, I'm enjoying it.
The last two weeks have been intermittent with exercise - and I find myself MISSING it. I also know I want my legs to be rested, but limber by the time we leave - so my plan is as such.
Tomorrow (new years day) - gym.
Saturday - gym.
Monday - gym.
Three more dreadmill workouts before I leave.
Oh yeah - and since today is the last day of 2008, I encourage you ALL to focus on 2009 in any posts you do tomorrow. Let's have a resolution-fest!
MAIN STREET AWAITS!
