Yes, I have been stalking the weather since last Friday when the 10-day forecast came out. I have been stalking it daily and there has not been much change. It looks like it is going to be in the low 50's at the 6:00 a.m. start time and close to 70 degrees around my anticipated finish time. Not too bad even though I was hoping for mid 40's to 50 at the start.
This week has been nothing but nerves trying to mentally prepare for this race. I have been packing my race bag a little at a time so that I don't forget anything. I plan on running two short and easy paced runs this week and then it's showtime! Thank you to everyone who has sent me positive comments about my race. Those are the words that I will remember when I feel like giving up in those last 6.2 miles!
How do you mentally prepare yourself for a marathon?
The physical work has been done but the mental aspect seems to be the toughest for me!
