I was going to go with an almost wordless Wednesday (see below post), but I have concerns that I need to get out of my head. The marathon is t-minus four days away. I’m getting nervous.
For starters, I woke up with a sore throat. I took vitamin C right away, and my sore throat is gone. However, my face is starting to hurt. The cold-sinus infection kind of hurt. I’ve been dealing with a coughing/congested/double ear infection kid since last week, and he hasn’t learned to cover his mouth when he coughs, so….it was a matter of time.
The weather forecast is nuts. Like…50% chance of snow on Saturday night kind of nuts. It hasn’t snowed here this winter! I’m not prepared to run in snow. I guess I’ll have to prepare my self in the next four days, but COME ON. It hasn’t snowed here! (And if it wants to snow on Sunday AFTER the race, I’ll gladly take it.)
I do not know what I’m going to wear. The temperatures are all over the place, and since I’m going to be out there for 5+ hours, I just don’t know what to wear so I’m warm, not too warm, and comfortable.
I know that I’m prepared, but there’s always that thought that I could have done more. I’m trying not to overdo it this week (I ran a little on Monday and today. I may do one more run this week.)
Sigh. Only four more days. And come Monday I can focus on my next race, the half marathon in DC. That will “only” be a half. Much more manageable than the full marathon I have in front of me on Sunday.
