Less than 2 days away from the Route 66 Marathon. Here’ goes my checklist.
- IPOD Loaded and Recharged (main song..Estasy of Gold)
- Garmin Fully Charged
- Race Shirt Selected
- Jelly Beans Bought
- Carb Meal #1
- Continuously Drinking Water
Now all I have to do is run 26.2 miles on Sunday. The weather appears to be nice on Sunday. I hope it stays cloudy and cool instead of clear and sunny. Wind should not be a factor. Am I nervous? Yes. I’ve trained hard but I am still trying to shake off a physical struggle leftover from the OKC Memorial Marathon. After I ran that race, I was in a “Zombie” state for several days. Definitely do not want to repeat that.
Anyway, I am super reflective tonight. I am so blessed to have wonderful family and friends. I get to witness another close friend finish her first marathon. How awesome is that? Awesome!!! I am so proud of my running friends/friends. Running truly is a wonderful sport that I enjoy. Including when i run 26.2.
This will be my first repeat race since i’ve been running just over a year ago. On a side note, I have registered for Dallas White Rock Marathon. That gives me three weeks recovery after Route 66.
Will this be my last post before the Marathon? Who knows, I have a lot to say right now. Will take tons of pictures throughout the weekend.
