Calm before the storm...

...nearly there now.

less than 3-hrs to the gun, and feeling oddly detached from proceedings. No over-excitement or gut-churning nerves, just a quiet calm solitude while the family still sleeps.

The days, weeks and months are nearly at an end, suddenly it feels strange, bizarre, daft almost, that I'll soon be lining up to start my first marathon.

There's a goal in mind, but beyond 20-miles today is very much uncharted waters.  The FATES my aid or conspire against me, but whatever happens its cherry-popping time, my first and one that I will enjoy and will remember.
