1. Tomorrow we leave for Las Vegas so my husband and I can each run our own first marathon! I have so many emotions right now…excited, nervous, excited, scared, happy… and excited! I know I’m starting to feel a little antsy with tapering and nervousness because I have been dreaming about the marathon and probably accidentally kicking my husband in the middle of the night with my “sleep running”. But I am seriously so freaking excited! I know I will make it to that finish line, even if it isn’t as fast as I hope. Like I wrote the other day about tapering…I need to trust in my training, and keep my mind strong in these final days.
2. The weather for Sunday looks nice. High temp of 70 degrees. Since we start at 3pm, it will be warm at the start, but should get to be a nice temperature before I get halfway through. I don’t think it will be much cooler than 60 degrees by the time I’m finished, so it will be perfect for running. Probably the thing I’m most nervous about is eating during the day, since I didn’t really do much night training. I’ll try to post as soon as I can after the race to let you all know how it goes!
3. Some fun stuff that’s not running…last night I saw the Trans Siberian Orchestra. They have put together a new show, and it was awesome! Cute story. Awesome rock show and lights. So much fun!
Good luck! A 3:00 start time would drive me crazy, but it sounds much better than getting up at 5 am!
GOOD LUCK, GOOD LUCK!!
I cannot wait to hear about it. And just picture me cheering you on.
I am so not a morning person so I'd actually love a late race!
Thank you! 🙂 I will definitely picture you cheering you on!
