My first marathon!!
How did this happen so quickly?
Here are some pre-race reflections… I’m thinking out loud here. I feel very nervous, but very excited. I’ve been shaking all day- restless, agitated, and unable to stomach my food. My appetite’s gone completely! I’m snacking away after having a small dinner, gradually tying to get the carbs in. Flapjacks are my friend- I’m making my way through 3 Trek bars, which are keeping me very happy.
I’m trying to take my mind off things by watching crap TV with my family. It’s so nice to be able to switch off for a moment.
I’m incredibly grateful for this training season. I’ve had some incredible highs and some shocking lows. To overcome my nerves and try to relax a little bit, I’m trying to be a wee bit philosophical and remember the reasons I’m doing this marathon. After all, everyone who runs a marathon has a story.
I honestly have no idea what to expect from tomorrow, but I’m hoping to enjoy as much of it as I can. After all, you only get one shot at your first marathon!
Wish me luck for tomorrow guys!
Lots of love,
