This week is the BIG adventure! The Dopey Challenge starts in TWO days when I shall run a 5k on Wednesday, 10k on Thursday, Half Marathon on Saturday and Marathon on Sunday totaling 48.6 miles over 4 days! I am excited and nervous at the same time. But determined to have a fun time and be strong all throughout.
How does nervousness manifest itself?
I obsess over the training, or the ONE week that wasn’t as expected.
And then I obsess over the weather.
And I went ballistic over a raw mango that Mr. FauxTriathlete brought home ONE of when I asked him to bring “some raw mangoes”.
Then I worried over every little niggle and sniffle.
Finally I freaked out about packing everything and made color coded lists for each ziploc baggie!
But I’m not done with my freakouts yet! I keep remembering things that I need. Some small thing I may have missed about my costume (Just yesterday, I discovered that I didn’t have red compression socks and the vendor list at the expo only had super high end products that I didn’t want to spend $$$ on. Luckily, FusionSports USA came to my rescue with red sleeves!).
And things that I am not going to be able to do – making sure that the minions have someone to look after them incase Mr. FauxTriathlete comes home late. And all groceries done for the week. And just being a mom.
It is certainly not easy being this Dopey!
How do you deal with taper madness?!
