When I started training for Philly 6 short weeks ago, I knew that the race was going to be a lot more relaxed then previous marathons. My co-worker joked that I would probably PR in the race because I was taking all of the pressure off myself, and my body wasn’t going to be super beat up like it is after normal 12-14 week training cycles.
My training has gone… awesome. My long runs have been strong, and I’ve felt pretty darn healthy (minus the monster cold from last week). The weather forecast should be cooler and cloudy (ie: jerbear running perfection), and I’ll be toeing the line with two of my favorite running gals.
Normally I’m mega-bitch during taper. Obsessing, obsessing, obsessing. Kyle commented that I should do more marathons “for fun” because I’m a lot less looney tunes this go around, and I must agree.
Our goal for the race: have fun, run hard, and take a ridiculous hand in hand finishing photo.
