Yep, it’s finally setting in… This is the first weekend all month that I haven’t raced, which means I have plenty of time to think and over think…. What the hell was I thinking signing up fora Marathon a month away!!!!! At the time it felt soooo right. Now, I’m having a little buyers remorse:/ I’m aware a month is NOT a lot of time however, I have also not been sitting around on my bum either…. I’ve put in some awesome long runs, and I’m finally coming to terms with hills (a necessary evil). I just feel ready… Kind of. I typically don’t make rash decisions about races. I study them; the course, awards, weather, etc, and THAN make a decision. I’m very funny about spending money on races. Clothes? I don’t even blink, but spending money on a race I really have to be into it… That’s why I know there is something special about this race!
My goal with this race was to PR, which I truly believe I can do…. My second goal was to get my boys ready for fall training and what 26.2 miles really feels like… I keep jumping back and forth with feelings of excitement and worry…..part of me is saying “tantra, you got this!” The other part is saying, ” you are insane!”
So I conclude with this, yes I am insane but I really DO believe I got this! I can’t look back, just keep pushing forward to May 25th!
Have you ever made a rash decision about a race? How did it turn out?
