Well, I can't believe it, but it is 5am and we are getting ready to head out for the bus up the canyon. I just thought I would post and remind myself why I am doing this. This has been an awesome journey with Suzie! I want her marathon to be as successful as she wants it to be. We are both wearing pink, of course! For me, I just want to be happy with the results- no matter what they are. I want to listen to my body(especially my heart) and run my best. I want to enjoy the beautiful course and be grateful I can run.
Okay, so if I said I had no time goals, I would be lying. :-) I have worked really hard and I know I am ready for this crazy event. Here are my 3 goals for the world to see:
1. (and most important) finish smiling without the death march that I did last year! Beat 5:11.
2. If I don't feel awesome, run around a 10 minute mile and finish before 4:30.
3. If I feel like a million bucks, I would love to break 4 hours.
So, there you have it. I will report back. Oh yeah, did I mention, I can't wait to run down the canyon?!
