Ever since the day I even thought about signing up for Ironman 70.3 Augusta, I knew it would be a long and hard road. Hence the #LongRoadToAugusta. But it was almost 10 months to the day that I signed up. I knew I would stumble, I knew I would have my firsts, I knew I would break down some days, I knew I would come out tougher some days, I knew I would love it all, I knew I would hate it too. But it was all a mush of thoughts and an eternally optimistic “it will all be fine”.
And in the midst of it all, I’ve wondered plenty of times – “What have I done?”
What have I done?
I’ve made myself smile all day long, I’ve made myself value hard work and heart, I’ve put myself on a path to meet some great people, I’ve made myself take on one of the hardest things I’ve ever done, I’ve made myself do things that weren’t even in the deepest depths of my imagination and I’ve made myself redefine my impossible!
And now, the #LongRoadToAugusta is finally here.
I don’t know what race day will bring tomorrow. I dont even know my race plan. I don’t know how I’ll feel tomorrow at mile 0 or mile 70.
All I know is I’ll be living and racing a dream come true.
Whatever tomorrow brings, I’m ready for it.
