marathon eve

I’m busy trying to psych myself up for running 13 miles tomorrow.  It’s definitely time to run after two false alarms, but the weather is wind and rain, and I won’t run if it’s pouring.  But I really want to run and just get it over with, for better or for worse.  I’m ready to close out the running season and move on to a rest and then maybe some swimming, maybe some cycling.  I’ve run 1000 miles this year, and I’ve also cycled 1000 years.  I’m in shape to run fast, or fast for me anyway, but the weather conditions are hard.  I’m also carrying a few more pounds than I’d like for running.

The race starts at 7:30, which means getting up at 5:30.  It’s a big race, much bigger than I usually run, but it’s nice that it’s only 30 minutes away.  I’m searching the internet for inspiration, then it’s off to bed.  Wish me luck!
