There is A LOT to be said for ANTICIPATION!

All this week I have been anticipating a great BIG Cesar salad from Quiznoes that I had planed to have on Friday. That was my “reward” for eating good and dropping 6.2 lbs. over the last month. Well, I went on Friday at 11 a.m. (as soon as they opened) and got my much anticipated salad. I took it back to my office and GUESS WHAT!?!?! They gave me RANCH dressing instead of Cesar dressing. I couldn’t believe it! I was SO bummed!!! The salad is still in the fridge. I haven’t even eaten it yet. May I’ll have it for dinner tonight.

There is a lot to be said for anticipation. Like the anticipation felt the days leading up to Christmas or the anticipation before some other special day or event.

I’ve been thinking much about the anticipation I have felt for weeks and will continue to feel over the next two months about the marathon. What if I do all this work and training and the day gets here and it’s like pouring down raining? What if just a few days before, I injure myself and am unable to run? What if I run and the run is not as glorious as I’ve imagined? What if I “hit the wall” with 5 miles to go?

All this thinking makes me very nervous! And then I remind myself, this is supposed to just be fun. I’m supposed to be having fun and enjoying this. This is not really about a race or an endurance event. This is about me, pushing myself, having fun, trying to be all that I can be, achieve something I never thought possible in my WILDEST dreams.

So, I will try to relax, chill out, try not to think about all the bad stuff that “could” (but probably won’t) happen. Maybe I should be concentrating on my next move instead — my NEXT goal. Maybe 26.2 is not enough. Where will I go from here? I will consider my options. I will ANTICIPATE my next move.
