I have been SWAMPED the past few weeks. Incase you couldnt tell by my lack of writing.
I went on vacation, moved, my office moved AND I’ve been training… I’m exhausted!
The good news is that my next big race is only 9 days away! I’m running the Chicago Marathon on behalf of Misericordia Heart of Mercy.
It’s my 2nd Marathon and I think I have some pretty lofty goals. If you remember, last year the goal was to finish alive! Mission Accomplished
This year the goal is to finish in under 5 hours… Errrrrr
Last week Adam asked me how I felt about the race… The answer is I’m not really sure.
I have no doubt about finishing, that’s for sure. But the 5 hours… I just don’t know how I feel about it.
I have faith that Coach Jen has me prepared. It was one of my top “To Do’s” when we started working together. My only question is have I prepared myself?
Last year this race was just for grins to say I did it. But along the way I got addicted to endurance sports and my races went from 10ks and half marathons to a 70.3, 2 Marathons this year and an Ironman in 2012!!!
I’m trying to stay focused, really it’s all about having fun… Right?
Ok “F” having fun, it’s about kicking ass (actually it’s about kicking 45,000 asses). I’m faster than last year, I’m lighter than last year so I should be able to destroy last year!
This week is now dedicated to psyc myself up for this race.
How do you get pumped for a big event?
