Chapter 8: Mental Preparation

Tomorrow marks what can arguably be called the most intimidating day of the camino. 37 kms. When called upon earlier this evening by Andy to sum up the thoughts of the team I decided to bypass the trepidation and uncertainty that accompanies thoughts of tomorrow in our minds, instead claiming that the team was ready and willing to take tomorrow head on. Of course I quickly received reactions from my fellow teammates denying this summary but it helps for me to think that we will show all 37 kilometers of the camino no mercy tomorrow. This way when we finish it can be said that we knew all along that we´d get through it in tact and unscathed. Putting blisters, body aches, persistent sun exposure, and the extra weight of the backpacks out of our heads for eight hours tomorrow and narrowing in on our will to finish the day is key. In the (paraphrased) words of Coach Casey the camino experience thus far has only been preparation for tomorrow, thus we have no reason to dread it. Mind over matter...
