It’s been really hard to write lately since every minute seems to be jammed packed with last minute preparations. I’m so happy with the way the training is going. I feel strong, fit and mentally ready. The hardest part is just waiting to leave. I want to go NOW.
I normally love school but right now its impossible to concentrate and I have absolutely no interest. I know this is not a good attitude since I have to apply to universities as soon as I get back from Spain and this is the semester that my marks are most important, but my mind is on my goal. Fortunately I’ve already made my university and course decisions.
Yesterday I received my TEAM CANADA track suit it was the best feeling ever. I’m so proud to have Canada on the back of my jacket. It also made it very real that I am actually leaving in a week. I’m so glad that my instructor Mr. Steven LeGrow is going with me, not only as my coach but as fellow competitor. We have a special bond following our dreams.
It’s a funny feeling inside. I want the competition to come so badly but at the same time I don’t want it to since I’ve enjoyed every single step of the journey getting to it and I just don’t want it to end.
