T-minus 6 days

Less than a week to go. My feelings: Calm, excited, nervous, anxious, ready. The butterflies have officially arrived to the stomach. I keep it together most of the time, but certain individuals have to deal with my occasional erratic behavior. Thank god for her support.

I have some goals for next year. I of course want to get back into climbing and cycling as soon as possible. Allot of my goals have to do with my rehab plan, but Loftier goals are necessary too. I have been invited by a fellow heart surgery recipient from northern california to do the 2014 Levi’s GranFondo race. I’m excited for this one. It looks pretty intense! Other goals include: skydiving, more highlining (I tried highlining for the first time 2 weekends ago!), climbing some big walls and a few select classic boulder problems in Joshua Tree (Caveman, Pigpen, White Rasta, Gunsmoke). Last weekend we went out to Joshua Tree and had a fun day of bouldering. I got on Caveman (V-7/8) and actually felt like it could go.
