I didn’t run yesterday because frankly I could barely muster up enough energy to make dinner for the kiddos. I woke up this morning feeling worse than any other day this week. Literally, I got out of the shower and laid in front of the closet on my floor, willing the clothes to just magically appear on my body.. yeah that never happened. So I pulled myself up and managed to get me and the munchkins out of the house earlier than normal, which meant DUNKIN was a def and it was a good thing because I needed it.
Once I got to work (I got here WAY early this morning), I sat down and started reading some blogs, when all of a sudden it hit me! All of the fears that I had for this weekend were overcome with excitement and joy. What the hell was I so afraid of all week?! Why was I so stressed about this weekend?! I’m def not winning it, so really there is no pressure…. I created all this crazy stress on my own. I need to just have fun (and not die)! I mean listen, it’s 26.2 miles so it’s not going to be a walk in the park for me, but I’m also not going to put pressure on myself… At the end of the day finishing a marathon is an accomplishment in itself. I would LOVE to break 4 hours… IF I can do that, I will be ecstatic. Anything better than that would be a bonus, anything worse, I can’t be mad at either. I’m just going to go out there, have fun, and run the best race that I CAN….
Happy Memorial Day weekend! See you on the other side… of the finish line!
