Day 38: This Is My Goal

“About 3 days ago I experienced my rock bottom.  I was feeling so heavy and I couldn’t resist the gravity.  But for some reason after I passed 2000 miles everything got easier.”

“Of course I was tired but somehow everything got easier.”

“So this race has been my goal.  This years race it was not clear whether or not it would be held because of the covid. But the race started, and for me to be part of the race that is everything.  I am so happy.”

“Of course to be able to complete the distance that would be my goal but really to be in the race is so nice it is my goal.”

” I would say that my most elated feelings came was the moment the race started, and I started running.  That was my most excited elated feeling.  But I have to say I try not to get too excited.  I prefer to stay calm and stable.  That is my overall attitude, and what I am trying to achieve.”

There was a time
When I had many goals.
Now I have only one goal:
My life’s perfection-progress-goal.

    Takasumi–such a model of self-transcendence— going the distance, even under duress– what a great lesson— so many smiles today!!
