My brain is complete mush this week, so excuse me for not being elaborate with nice, thoughtful blog posts. My thought stream looks something like this: "pace, marathon, Sunday, five days, water?, hydrate, carbs, 26.2 miles, expo, what do I pack?, GU, pace, run, training, weather, temperature, shoes, what the heck am I doing?, training plan, am I prepared?, AHHHH!" And then it repeats.
I am trying not to talk about it to every person that I come into contact with, but if I go an hour without mentioning something I get a bit of verbal vomit and just utter to the air "marathon". I'm in a current state of frenzy, excitement, nervousness, confidence, and excitement again. I'm trained for this, and in five days I'm going to do it!
I always talk about running for bling, and while I can't wait to earn this bling, I have to say that in this case I'm just as excited about the journey, the experience, and the finish line.
I'm planning on writing a whole post about goals and thoughts going into the race in a more structured way, but at this point I'm just trying to process through exactly what my thoughts, plans, and goals are.
Disney does text, twitter, and Facebook based tracking, and while I'm not sure if anyone is interested, I always love tracking runners of the blogs that I read. If you wanted to track me by text, because I'm not going to have it posted to twitter I don't think, you can click here. You just input my last name, which I'm happy to share if you're interested. Just email me or comment and I'll share.
Oh, and big news!
Repeat National Champions! Roll Tide!
