It’s here. Well, almost here.
I’m one week away from my marathon.
With my last long run in the books yesterday — it was only eight miles — I only have four runs left between the Portland Marathon and me.
But, I’m also getting nervous.
I feel kind of like I did before the Vancouver Marathon last year.
I’m confident in my training.
The past three months of training was the hard stuff. The marathon is just the celebration.
This week I will listen to my body. I will eat well. I will drink a lot of water. I will continue to ice and foam roll. I will sleep at least eight hours each night.
Because, when next Sunday arrives, I want to be ready to celebrate!
