Right before I do a big hard climb (rock and ice climbing are my first loves), I always have that pit in my gut and the flow of ifs and doubts streaming through my head. I used to get a little intimidated by that knot and the questions. Now I realize that it is all just extra energy (I am the one that has added the labels). Now when the jellies in my belly show up, I welcome them and use that extra energy to throw everything I've got into the climb. I have learned to love the feeling, the excitement, the questions, and know that when that "feeling" shows up, I am going to show up fully, say yes and climb a solid graceful climb~
You are going to ROCK the leadville 100!!!
