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!
