I have a month. Pretty much before I head out to Utahville. I am stoked, nervous, anxious....and now a little afraid. I decided to watch videos of bobsled crashes. I wanted to visually prepare myself for possibilities. I thought this would help get my mind in the correct frame that This DOES happen and I need to not ignore that fact. So ..... people die. People die from a lot of extreme sports. The thing that scares me most is that I am not going to be 100 PERCENT in control of what happens. I wont be driving, I didnt design the course and I'm not the sled or track so if something went wrong with those things....I could be toast!
There was always a comfort when running track because I was in complete control of my body while running. If there was a pot hole on the track, I could jump over it. If there is a broken hurdle, I go around....I mean, those are more controlled factors. I didnt depend on a sled, someone else driving and I certainly wasnt going as fast! Anywho - I know I am ready for this and I know I have prepared to the best of my ability so I'm not concerned about that. ......:Deep Breath.
