Hog\’s Hunt Prelude – Friday AM

To start, here is a beautiful picture from some place in Colorado stolen from Journey to Badwater blog,

I just cancelled the hotel reservation I had for some roadside inn near Huntsville. I did this because I wanted to relax at home and in my own bed tonight. I thought I would hate being in some degraded cheap hotel room. And I can make green smoothies this evening to have something for after the race tomorrow.

But here is the surprise. As I clicked cancel, I realized that I made that reservation in the first place because I think I am getting too old to get up and 2:45 am, drive 100 miles and run 31 miles.

But thinking I am old, and acting that way is the key revelation here. If I start that now, I\’m sunk. Yes, some crummy issues are going on in my body; but I could see these differently. I don\’t have to add \”old age\” as the hidden issue behind all my decisions.

A Course in Miracles chapter 4: \”Let the Holy One shine on you in peace, knowing this and only this must be.\”

Now, I\’m going to do an easy workout. Then go to work. I just donned my hachi maki, which says \”Spirit Warrior\” in Japanese (fighting spirit in picture). Now I feel strong, decisive, ready.
