Until I Can

As I write this...I am in a really tough place.  Physically and particularly emotionally.  I am looking in the face of one of those life changing moments that we know are inevitable...that we try to prepare for and that we think we know just how we will handle when it comes our way....Until it Does.

This is no small easy fix and certainly not anything that gets figured out in a day.

This is one of those moments when we rally the on our closest friends and family, take the risk and ask for help...not really knowing if we will get  it...Until We Do.

This is one of those moments when we seek God's Wisdom....His healing and His promise that we will be safe...that we will not be overcome by our own fear...hoping  beyond hope that He hears our prayers and heals our hearts...knowing that He promises He will...but not quite sure...Until He Does.

This moment for about having people in my life that believe in me...that believe in my strength...that believe in my courage and that trust in God's greater plan completely....Until I Can.

Thank you!

So the MS150 is just about 2 weeks away. I knew the moment would come in preparing for this that I would begin to get the "pre-game jitters". Well...that time is now!
My level of fear is ratcheted up largely because after having a 2nd, pretty hard fall on Good Friday, I am even further behind the proverbial 8 ball.

With 2 weeks left to train...I have less than 40 to 50 percent mobility in my left knee...which makes pedaling a bike a bigger challenge than I expected at this point in my training!

It certainly feels as if I keep running into unexpected obstacles that make me question my own ability to complete this challenge.  Not the first time THAT has happened...sure it won't necessarily be the last...BUT...
I don't feel like giving up!
The reality is that I probably am a long shot for finishing...and further...most of the people that I am supposed to ride with will more than likely see me at the beginning of Day 1 for the last time until we meet at the end of each day!!
I am alright with that...
This challenge will not be about a great finish...may not even be about finishing at all...
But it IS about IS about being a part of something that is much bigger than me...It IS about overcoming the "No You Can'ts and proving the Yes I Can' IS about giving back and it IS about staying true to my Journey.

Forging On Prayerfully...with Hope and a bit of a bee in my bonnet...NOT QUITTING!
