I've been resting all week & icing my muscles in preparation for the race on Sunday. Today I will lay out all my stuff to make sure I have what I need. I may need to make one last trip to REI. I get one last adjustment at the chiro this afternoon. I will pack. I will try to get to bed early.
Tomorrow we drive to the redwoods to check in for the race, find our hotel & get our last load of carbs at the pasta party.
Sunday I'll get up early enough to enjoy a PBJ sandwich & head to the start.
When will my nerves begin to act up? When will the adrenaline kick in? When with this even be over? In just a few hours!
I've spent the last 3 months training my body - I've run about 200 miles. I've received amazing support and reached my fundraising goal! I learned that I was the top fundraiser for 1/2 marathons this season. I couldn't have done this without you!
On Monday I get to follow the "recovery calendar". On Tuesday I guess I'll start my new role as mentor for the next season.
Today's post isn't the end of this blog because I joined the next season as mentor training for the Nike Women's Marathon. This new role will bring new challenges and new stories to share. The new season also bring another opportunity for you to help me raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
