Tomorrow’s the day: Big Sur Marathon.
My second 26.2 and the culmination of 18 weeks of training. I’m prepared, but still nervous…anxious. It’s natural, though.
I’ve had two quotes in front of me; one for 18 weeks (it’s on each page of my training plan,) the other I heard just this week:
“Do the work. Do the analysis. But feel your run. Feel your race. Feel the joy that is running.”
~Kara Goucher, American long-distance runner
The new one:
“You are better than you think you are, and you can do more than you think you can.”
~Ken Chlouber, Leadville 100 founder.
Both good, both keepers.
