Tomorrow or rather in 5 1/2 hours, I will make the trip with my family in tow, to I RAN GAN where I will meet up with my sole mate, Jodi, and her family. This marks our fourth race together. To date, I have completed a 5 km, 4km and my first 10 km only 3 weeks ago. You must understand that this in itself is a tremendous accomplishment.
Tomorrow, our goal is to complete a 10 km. I wish the chatter of our pre race phone calls could be posted – or maybe there is a reason why they aren’t! Our jitters, fears, goals are traded with as much anticipation and excitement as the first draft pick. However, tonight we find that we are not in the best shape. Jodi might be trading in her Princess tiara for a Pirate’s patch (eye infection?). And I, with a missing crown and the symptoms of food poisoning, get ready to run another race towards the Castle!
