I’m Currently Running a Marathon

By  |  1 Comment

As I speak, I am currently running my first marathon!! Wohoo!  One hour down, so many more to go! This morning I would have gotten up pretty early.  I will have eaten my oatmeal with almond butter and a banana.   I’m sure my nerves are going crazy.  There is no doubt in my mind that I can finish the marathon.  Heck, I once ran 15 miles on a fractured foot.  I know I can push through discomfort that is going to happen during this marathon.  It’s just a matter of how fast I will go.  I didn’t set too difficult of goals this time around.  It’s my first marathon and first race over 10k.  It’s hard to say how your body will react to a marathon and especially on any particular day.  One day you may feel great the next, feel horrible.  Hopping today is a great day for me! I plan on taking advantage of the huge crowds I have heard there is in Chicago and absorbing all the cool places I will run past to take my mind off the pain of the marathon.  And you betcha I will be crossing that finish line smiling!  I will have accomplished a dream I have had since I first started running in 5th grade.

More updates will come post marathon of how it turned out! Stay tuned 🙂
