I got the email last week confirming that I will be meeting my team for the Montreal-NYC running challenge in the next few days.
These are the folks with whom I'll be training, sweating, raising money, and running with from Montreal to New York City during a 3 day challenge next May. Part of me is looking forward to meeting everyone (we should be 8 in total), but another part of me is definitely anxious about meeting everyone.
Will they like me? Will I like them? Am I sufficiently in shape to be doing this challenge? Will I bring the team down?
No matter what I want to be doing this challenge for me - for all the physical and mental good it will do for me. The team will be an added bonus. I hope they can challenge me to push myself further and harder then I would push myself, and I hope I will help them also along in their own journey.
Starting next Wednesday when I meet with the team and pay my enrollement fees this challenge definitely becomes real.
Bring it on!!
