This is how...

... I get a few days prior to a race.  I guess that some of that can be expected... but gimme a break!  Think think think THINK!  It's like a hamster in one of those clear rolly-balls... going and going and going! Except that this particular hamster is on his 5th day of a good crack run.  Seriously.  Although I will say that the picture to the left assumes a still, pensive, calm reflection... that doesn't exactly sum me up the week before a race that MEANS something to me.  Despite my best efforts to breathe... and relax and focus... I have to go through a period of chaos within my own head.  That way, when race day comes... I AM calm.  I CAN breathe.

So let me just say this... to those that I know and love and respect and adore.  Both my family and the people that have come to be my most dear and closest friends... Bear with me.  It'll be over soon.

Breathe...
