After months of training diligently (most of the time), I'm down to the last 3 miles. I ran 6x400 Monday night, 6 miles Tuesday night, and tonight I'll get in the last three at marathon pace. Tomorrow morning, we will be off to Green Bay.
I'm really excited for this marathon. Besides being a "reward" for months of hard training, I'll have my whole support crew there cheering me on. My husband and Sophie, my mom, and my in-laws are all coming. Hopefully knowing they will be there will give me an extra kick of motivation.
I have several tiers of goals:
2) Sub-5:00. I need to beat the suck-fest that was Grandma's 2008.
3) Sub-4:55. I would love to get a PR.
4) Sub-4:30. I think I can do this. If everything goes well. And I don't wimp out.
I'll be back on Sunday night. In the meantime, hope you all have a great weekend!
