The majority of the IM Brazil team leaves Richmond today @ 2:25, bound first for Miami. We leave Miami tonight for an overnight flight to Brazil. We should be in Florianopolis sometime before noon on Wednesday. I am packing my laptop and digital camera. My plan is to provide updates on what we are up to - as long as the technology cooperates. Keep your fingers crossed!
And for those of you who don't know, we all plan to wear our Trigirl running skirts on the marathon. This includes team members who tend to avoid skirts, including: Mark, Rick, Jeff, Tim, Som, Karen and Shelley - and hopefully, CJ. Lynn and I love our skirts, so it won't quite as exciting to see us in them.
And here are some words of motivation from Anna Quindlen. It's writing like this that makes me realize, despite my fears, I am so excited to be heading to Brazil.
But you are the only person alive who has sole custody of your life. Your particular life. Your entire life. Not just your life at a desk, or your life on the bus, or in the car, or at the computer. Not just the life of your mind, but the life of your heart. Not just your bank account, but your soul.
