It’s less than 6 hours to my flight to Washington D.C. and 56 till I begin to run my first marathon! I’m psyched and terrified, euphoric and cripplingly anxious all at once. As the clock ticks away these few precious hours, I have to get my act together, pack, print the boarding passes, finalize and sync my marathon playlist, inventory my running supplies and try and catch some much needed shut-eye.
This past month has been such a whirlwind of activity; I’ve barely registered how days dawned and flew by. Increasing demands at work, workshops, imminent exams, mentoring and computer problems have left me with little time and energy to be creative or to blog. I’m beginning to envy and admire those working moms who manage successful careers and a gamut of hobbies and have well-kept homes, happy families and surprisingly well-balanced children! But I digress.
For now, I must focus and tackle my to-do list with vengeance. And I must run a marathon. I promise to take the time to write and fill you in on everything when I return. Wish me luck folks!
“Tick tock on the clock, but the party don’t stop no
Tonight I’mma fight, till I see the sunlight,
Tick tock on the clock, gonna run till I drop
Don’t stop, make it pop
As I tie my sneakers up….”
