no time goals for race day
Just miles and miles of long slow distance to build endurance and to strengthen the mind. How do I feel? Well, thanks for asking. I feel pretty good, even a little optimistic and definitely pleased with my recovery.
How do I really feel?
Scared of failure, scared of the distance.
A good friend of mine says to always respect the distance of the marathon and maintain a healthy fear of the 26.2 miles. I'm going into this race wrapped in hope and patience. My schedule is day-by-day. I've got three weeks of catching up and much of it will be solo because I'm on a customized training schedule.
Fargo is still on the horizon, on a wing and a prayer.
The picture above? ... thought you'd never ask... that's me dancing across a 10 k finish line last Saturday... note, both feet off the ground... I'm airborne.
