It’s race week baby!
With a marathon looming 2 days in my future, one usually reflects on the training they have put in.
Winter training sucks, especially this winter, but I did manage a few 18 milers. I have also been cross training a lot, using my bike trainer. All of this has been spotty though due to a lot of vacations, most of which took us to snowy places where running long wasn’t possible.
Like any race, the question of being physically prepared is generally overshadowed by mental preparedness. I am mentally ready to run my first race being 100% injury free in over a year. I know I raced last year and was on the mend, but I always had some minor pain after or during. I am currently back to normal and I have been loving it.
Maybe it’s because I was in Montana shredding some serious mountain a few weeks ago?
I will not be running with a Garmin. I will not be running with any expectations. I will just run fast.
Anyone want to guess my finish time?
