Attakwas has some kind of mysterious pull. It left me broken twice and each time I said it would be my last. Somewhere deep down though I had an inkling of hope that it could even be enjoyable and this year – my 3rd one – was that bit of magic. It’s a mind game – ride within yourself, accept the fact that is it’s a long, tough but beautiful day out. Choose to take pleasure in the fact that it’s all yours for the taking.
