I have a butterfly garden in my stomach!

I will be brief today.

It is an open door or maybe smaller, a window.

I am looking out and saying hello to the infinite.

I have never blogged, I haven't raced a multi-stage event.

It is alot of firsts...Vertiginous jump into the unknown.

What ifs abound, self questions, self doubts...but I know I want to do this, I dreamed of experiencing where my feet will take me, of open lands and unkown horizons, of overcoming.

That is all for today. I will go on as the training continues and see weather or not the stories will flow. Maybe next post will be about giving thanks and bit more about myself. This could be like talking to the trees in the woods.

See you soon!

Hey Carmen, I can't wait to follow your journey to crushing the Lapland course. You have surpassed the greatest line that intimidates a lot of people, that is, signing up. You have my 100000000000% support all the way. lots of love from the desert mailman.

Oh Baldish! And the fates bring us back together! Thank you for your note. Yes, one foot in front of the other and one day at a time. It seems that it has been a life time since we met in Lanzarote. You had such a great race in MDS, solid. What an inspiration! I loved following you daily and seeing your face on the screen at the end of every stage. I will be do my best to stay vertical, you know me and my face plants :0. This will indeed be an adventure and so meaningful that we can do this together. On we go! Best always, Carmen

Hi Carmen, I look forward to seeing you again in Lapland :-) I share the butterflies with you ... it's been many, many years since I have done an adventure like this! One foot in front of the other and slow steady progress forward will get us to the finish line of this grand adventure. see you once again! Baldish
