Twelve seems like an important number.
There are the 12 days of Christmas. A dozen equals 12. There are 12 months in a year. The Seattle Seahawks have their 12th man. You need 12 strikes to bowl a perfect game. The highest number function key on a keyboard is F12. You get the idea.
We’re 12 days away from Chicago. The Chicago Marathon, that is.
I’m getting really excited and nervous.
This will be the furthest I have ever traveled for a race.
This will be the flattest course I have ever done (once I am done).
This will be the first time running a full marathon on “solid” training that had to be down-scaled a lot due to my IT band issues.
This makes me very nervous.
But, all I can do now is run a bit, get adequate amount of sleep every night, eat healthy and hydrate hydrate hydrate.
No matter the time I run, I know it will be a good race.
But, I will be there.
And, I will race.
