So, the countdown to the marathon (my first ever full) is in full swing. Only 4 short days left! EEK! Is it normal that I’m panicking just a bit?? Well, not necessarily panicking, but I’m definitely nervous with a little excitement thrown in. I’m totally counting on that nervous energy and adrenaline to carry me through the 26.2. My friend, and super-fast running buddy, John has also signed up to run with me. When I say with me, I mean he’ll be there running too…but at warp-speed. We will meet up for Gatorade at the end.
I have been tapering my runs quite a bit this week. I did an awesome 9-miler on Saturday in which it was so hot I threw caution (and dignity) to the wind and ran in just my sports bra. And I didn’t even mind! Thanks Running for helping eliminate a some of the jiggle! I then did a slow 2 miles on Tuesday morning, then 5 miles Tuesday night with John. I plan to get in one more short run (3-4 miles) tomorrow then resting until the race on Sunday.
At this point it’s pretty much a “here goes nothin” attitude!
