I. Can. Do. This!

I feel physical pain deep within my stomach.

Breathing becomes a chore as I gasp for breath.

My palms become damp with sweat and as I wipe them off on my thighs I find myself doubled over feeling weak at the knees.

Breathe.... focus..... one breath at a time.
I drop to the floor on my knees... dizzy.
Breathe.... focus.... one breath at a time.

I received an e-mail today discussing a get together with the ladies who will form our group that will  be entering the 100 mile skijour race in 2 years.

This is real.

Excitment courses through me at the thought of such an adventure.
Fear takes over as I think of all I need to do to get myself and my dogs ready.

I'm so scared.

I can hardly breathe.

Breathe.... focus.... one breath at a time.

So I stand up.... legs apart to hold my balance and face my fears.

I can do this.
I will do this.
It's okay to be scared, not okay to give in to the fear and let it stop me.
