I’m tired, disorganised, the clock is ticking and I can’t get moving. The arthritis in my hands is bad, I’ve wrenched my right shoulder and bizarrely my left ankle is hurting. And I’ve just got a sore throat and a cold.
But I know this is the dip before the start. I’m grateful for the prayers and support of friends and family. We have the pre-race Yukon Prayer this afternoon. God is still good, and He is in control.
