I am so glad that I have Thanksgiving to distract me from the fact that I have MY FIRST MARATHON IN 11 DAYS!!!!!
Am I ready? I don’t know, but I guess I’ll find out!
Am I excited? Ummm… YEAH!
Am I nervous? UNBELIEVEABLY so.
But I’m as ready as I’ll ever be, so I’m just ready to do this thang.
I ran last night after two days of rest following my 20-miler Saturday. I expected to still feel sluggish, and I sat out with all intents of just taking on an easy 5 miles. The legs (even the knee!) felt really good! Without even trying, that was my second fastest 5-mile run ever.
Maybe it was the nerves; maybe it was the bangin’ play list I’m putting together; or maybe it was the fact that I had some pretty ferocious winds at my back for part of the run. Whatever. I’ll take it any way I can get it.
I hope you all have a glorious Thanksgiving!
