Day before the Charleston Marathon
Well, today was the last training day before the Charleston Marathon. I was supposed to run 3 miles at my marathon pace, but it was too cold outside. So I ended up running faster … a lot faster. My pace tomorrow is going to be around the 10:30 mark, and today I ran at 9:07 for my average pace. Needless to say, I can’t run that tomorrow or else I will only make 3 miles.
Anyway, I went to the expo and picked up my packet for the race for tomorrow. It’s a pretty nice shirt, and was worth the $20 for an extra one. It’s also funny that I have such a low number since I am use to having higher numbers when I run. I think my number is 923 …
I’m looking forward to tomorrow and I’m going to finish the whole 26.2 miles. My mantra for tomorrow is:
Know that when it hurts, I’m not the only one hurting.
