Needless to say, I'm finding it a little hard to focus these days -- so much good stuff on the horizon, the least of which is the New York City Marathon.
I didn't let myself even pack skis for the trip to Colorado. Even though A-Basin opened while I was there I had no business being on any early-season ice runs. That just seemed like getting up in fate's face and taunting it. Not a good idea when you are mere weeks out from an event you have devoted the last four months of your life to training for. But I would be lying if I said that I wasn't completely preoccupied with the upcoming winter. Ski season is pretty much the only thing on my mind right now, and maybe that's a good thing for the marathon. Keeps those eggs happily widespread among the various baskets of life and not in one little 26.2 mile nest. No pre-race stress nightmares. Only daydreams of crazy adventures to come.
