The running chart I made and have been following the past couple months! can't believe tomorrow it will be complete!
I am trying not to freak out. I am rushing with excitement, and fear all at the same time. I am just so dang anxious. Tomorrow, along with a huge group of family and friends, I will be running 26.2 miles.
I am ready to cross this experience off my bucket list. All the months of preparation to accomplish this goal. Running a marathon is only partially about the physical endurance, there comes a point where your body is well conditioned, and it becomes a mental game. Mental conditioning.
I have done a half marathon before this, and crossing the finish line I didn't expect to feel what I did. It is actually a very emotional and almost spiritual experience. I know that sounds crazy, but if you ever done something like this, you know what I am talking about. Pushing yourself, and gaining control of your mind, it is the best feeling of self accomplishment.
I have never felt more in control of my thoughts and it has been such a growing experience I never expected to have doing this. I know I can do it, but I am so scared. It doesn't help that I did something to my knee last week, I am trying to not let it worry me too much and just focus on finishing and not about a time. I don't want my knee problem to get me down about the race. Here is to a grand day of accomplishment (&sore legs) for many people tomorrow :) Wish us luck!
