Let’s talk goals – it can be scary putting your goals out there, but you’ve followed along on this whole journey, so I want to share everything with you. Whether you want me to or not ; ). I have a time goal for this marathon. I would love to cross the finish line in 3 hours and 45 minutes. I have done the work, so now it’s just time to trust the process. No one knows what they’re getting into on race morning; so much can change during 26.2 miles. All I can do is my very best! I feel ready and I have the best coaches in the world supporting me.
I have an easy 20 minute shake-out in the morning, then I’ll hit the road! This is my second marathon, so just based on my first (HERE), I know it’s going to hurt. All races hurt. I’ve been through that pain and survived it. I’m excited to see how my body feels this race – I am anxious to learn more about my body and compare this race to my last – that’s how we learn what works best for us. It’s supposed to be pretty hot on race day, so I have been hydrating with electrolytes all week. I am not a good heat runner, so that’s definitely going to test me. I can’t wait to share my race recap with you on Monday, no matter the outcome! I am going to be using Skratch hydration mix and Spring Energy gels for nutrition during this race.
My playlist is HERE. I need to add a few more songs to it.
Oh yeah, we also start moving Monday, HA! Big weekend for us. I hope you have the best Friday and a wonderful weekend!
