The jitters are there. And it's not from the columbian coffee. Time to embrace it, accept those nerves and put the energy into my legs. It's time to execute, make the most of the preparation we've had, the dozens of standing starts, the pacing, the exchanges, etc in one singular focus: GO FAST!
The city noises outside - the honks, car alarms, traffic, etc - remind me that it's important to go to a quiet space, somewhere within myself to center, ignore distractions, and get ready for the task at hand.
Focusing on the here now is amplified times ten. Relax, breath, embrace, enjoy.
