3 days until my first marathon

Wednesday, October 09, 2013

I read recently that this upcoming weekend is the biggest marathon weekend of the year. Thousands of people around the country will be running a marathon this Saturday or Sunday, and I am one of those people. Wow!

This is happening. I'm so close to fulfilling this dream I can barely catch my breath. I'm trying to relax and visualize only the most positive race I can have. I'm trying to take everything in and enjoy the culmination of months of training and time away from my family for long runs every Saturday morning. I'm so excited and anxious that one of my fifth grade students suggested I must have pigeons in my stomach, not butterflies...I think he's right. :)

I want to relish every minute of the final stage of this marathon journey. Thank you to everyone who's come with me.

    I'm cheering for you!!!! Even though I'm on the other side of the country, you should still hear me - I can cheer pretty LOUDLY!!! emoticon

    Good luck and I can't wait to hear how your race goes!!

    BTW, you're seriously motivating me to consider a marathon - something I've NEVER even considered...

    I hope it's in Baltimore. I'll be there. On the Half course. Baltimore's Full is challenging, but it take you through the Zoo.
