I thought about this while climbing the Richter the other day in Preparation for the race. My intial thought was, man this is going to be one hard race. Not really a positive thought. I then thought this is, man this is going to be one epic race. At that point it realized that the difference between hard and epic is perspective. I am taking the Epic perspective.
So with that said, things have been going well. My leg is healing up quite nicely, I am feeling fit, and I am more prepared and organized than I have ever been for a race. I might possibly even be able to get a couple good nights sleep leading up. That is unheard of for a procrastinator like me.
I am still not mentally on my game, but I am getting there.
What Al Pacino is talking about here rings especially true to my life right now. Not all of it. But some of it. It definitely helps to get me fired up. I have another movie speech to post but I am saving that for a day closer to the race.
Time to Chill out in the ice bath.
