One Week Away

In a week I will be running my first marathon. I am feeling a variety of emotions:

Excitement because this is a big deal for me and my first marathon.

Nervousness because this is my first marathon so I don't have anything to compare it to.

Prepared because I have done a very good job with my training and I feel like I am ready and will do well.

Scared because my knee still doesn't feel 100%, I don't feel that it will be a major issue but I would feel better if it felt great. I won't worry about it though because I do have a week for it to start feeling great.

Determined because I'm really going to do this!

This week will be a preparation week. I am going to attempt to eat very healthy, drink lots of water so that can be properly hydrated for the run, and go to bed early every night this week so I will be well rested. Wish me luck!

I agree -- you're going to knock this out of the park. I'm looking forward to hearing the mile by mile report when you get back.

I am so excited for you! As I have said along your journey, you are definitely inspiring me to do something (maybe not run... but something). You'll be the first to know when I do. :)
