6 Days and Counting
My marathon will be here before I know it. It's a busy week at work while trying to eat right, sleep a lot, run smartly, and figure out what to pack. I think San Francisco could be a tad chilly and since I trained in Orange County in the middle of summer I didn't exactly get to train in pants. I am a little worried I am either going to freeze or get serious chafing if I wear pants. What's a girl to do? I still am having a hard time believing it's really time to do this. I feel ready and I feel like I can do it, but now my mind is playing the trick on me of wanting to do really well. I mean I have always wanted to do well at it, but I think I figured it was my first one so just take it easy and leave it at that. Now I want to finish it in 4-5 hours, preferably closer to 4, and the pace I have been training at puts me closer to 5. Hmmm. Must not focus on this. Must run the race. Must get out there and feel out my body and push when it feels right and hold back when it doesn't. Ok speaking of sleep, i need to be sawing logs so I will check in tomorrow with the feelings of the day. We're in the home stretch kids.
