The day before my first marathon...wow, I never thought it would get here and now that it is, I am little disappointed. Yes, disappointed. I kinda like the anticipation leading up to the event and soon, it will be in the past. I tend to over-think things, LOL.
I have several events lined up already to keep me going and not fall off this wonderful fitness wagon that I managed to jump on.
Two weeks from today I am doing an all women's 100km bicycle ride. I've done this ride numerous time, but it's been 2 years since the last time, and I have not spent much time on the bike this year. It will be a slow day, but with lots of visiting and eating at the rest stops!
Three weeks from tomorrow I am doing my first sprint tri in 7 years. I entered a drawing and won entry to it. I figured it was a sign, I needed to do this. Soooo, time to start swimming again. Thankfully, all the running has really improved my endurance, so I am pretty confident I won't drown during the swim. But the best part is I will be able to run the 5k part of the tri. The last few races I had done 7 years ago I had stress fractures in my lower legs and couldn't run. I am excited to be able to actually run! Fancy that!
And then there is the See Jane Run 1/2 marathon in June that I have already signed up for, and some other events that I am looking at doing. It should be a very FIT summer for sure!
I want to post about the marathon tomorrow so I can have a record of it was like. I tried to post about the training leading up to the marathon, but found I felt the same every week, like I was not going to survive! I didn't want to put all that negativity out there, so I stopped posting.
I am anxious to get this marathon started! I don't necessarily want it to be over, I just want it to be started! Does that make sense?
Happy Running to all!
