Hope When You Take That Jump, You Don’t Fear the Fall

It’s finally here.

In less than six hours I will be on course and this thing we call World’s Toughest Mudder will be underway.

Yesterday it all became real. As I set up my text in my pit area and looked around at all the other people doing the same, I realized that this really is it.

I thought about the girl I was in high school and all the things that I never did. All the things I was afraid of failing at.

Sometimes I wish I could go back in time and talk to that girl. Because that girl is so different from who I am now.

If only…

But all I have is the right now. And as I sit here in my living room, I know that I’ve accomplished so much more than I ever thought I would in regards to physically fitness and health.

And as I imagine that start chute and jogging up that hill towards the iconic A-frame, I couldn’t be more at peace.

I keep telling myself: ‘I am the storm’.

There are certain songs that I listen to and know the lyrics to. And today’s song is called ‘I Lived’. And that’s what I’m doing today.

I’m living.

Can’t wait to be on the course and remind myself of that fact at 2 am when I’m freezing and convinced that I’m dying.

And keep posted for a REALLY late recap of Atlanta (oops!) and a recap of this weekend!
