One more dawn
One more day
One day more!
~Les Miserable, One Day More
To say that I'm excited is a vast understatement. I can't sit still. I can't think of anything but pounding out the miles. I'm so ready to begin. It seems like years ago that I was first trying to talk myself out of this, first thinking, "Are you crazy? what makes you think you can do that?!" And the gypsy charged out of the woods and hollered, "You can't NOT do this! Get walkin'... get on down the road, gal." So, here I am, six months later, dancing at the gate and waiting for the starting gun.
This has already benefited me in so many ways - spiritually, emotionally, physically. The very act of walking has made me stronger and better in every way. I'm now down 6 sizes from where I was at this time last year. It has all come together. The spiritual, emotional and physical are the equilateral triangle upon which mankind's being is based - ruin one side and the integrity of the whole falls apart. A little over a year ago I was a geometrical nightmare. Now... now I'm complete. Ok, geometry lesson over - geometry was never where my math strength lay anyway.
Looking forward... moving forward... I'll see you all on Monday.
