Butterflies

One week from today I will be packing up my bag and starting my 5 hour drive to Madison< WI for the ICE AGE TRAIL 50!!!!!!!!!!  I have butterflies in my stomach!!!!!

That is not a bad thing - but every time someone asks me the date of the "race" I get a nervous feeling.  When I signed up for this race over 130 days ago I knew this day would eventually come.  I have had 130 days of fun with it. When people ask me about my next race and I tell them it has been fun to watch their reactions as they exclaim "You are going to do WHAT?"  I have loved possessing that little bit of craziness!  But now that the day is almost here I am saying to myself "You are going to do WHAT?????"  I know now that I am crazy!!! 

All is good though - I feel complete peace about the run.  If everything goes well, then fantastic!  If not, if everything falls apart, well then, at least I have beautiful scenery for 50 miles!
