I have scheduled 2 appointments:
1. My pre-surgical visit with Dr. Gadd. This is the first (of few) steps towards the actual surgery date. I asked the scheduler if I could get a date at the end of November or early December for surgery. Her response, “Of course! We can even get you in earlier if you want.” Uh, no thanks. I’m good with later. So I see my doctor in mid-September, will likely have additional imaging in October, and then… da da da dahhh.. surgery! (That’s me pretending that I’m excited).
2. My second appointment is with the road. Pavement. I’m waiting to hear if I got into the Boston 1/2 Marathon for October 10, 2010 (10/10/10). There was a 9am open registration, but no one is guaranteed to get in until an actual confirmation is received. I’m terrified of this race. Here’s why: I ran the Worcester Marathon (I use the word “ran” loosely) in 3 hours and 4 minutes. For the Boston 1/2 Marathon… THEY STOP TIMING PEOPLE AT 2 HOURS AND 30 MINUTES. For real, people? FOR R-E-A-L??
But, I did it. I registered.
I fear my surgery. I fear this race.
What will you push yourself to do today?
Peace, love, and meeting it head on,
