I’m standing in front of the door. Many have touched it before me and failed. Fewer have touched it and been successful. Whatever happens…
I refuse to be ruled by a ticking watch.
“Get to Honister by 4:30pm” repeats in my head.
None of this has happened yet. I’m sat staring at a screen and thinking about the different sections. The steep descent from Dollywagon, the scree slope down to Wasdale and the final few steps to the door.
“Get to Honister by 4:30pm”
I am happy to get round, but in my head I see a successful finish. I see myself opening a beer before I touch the door of Moot Hall. I see myself running that last section into Keswick without my sandals and I see myself touching the door with my barefoot.
Pondering whether I’m capable of this is pointless. It’s time to find out whether I can move fast enough over the frozen winter terrain to get around the 42 Lake District peaks in under 24 hours.
All I can say at this point is…
“I will see you on the other side”
