Race week has arrived and with it more nerves than I thought. I have been thinking about my first marathon race for three months and this Sunday I’ll be taking part in the Publix Georgia Marathon. 26.2 miles lay ahead and it’s certainly a mental mind warp to stay sharp and focused on the goal.
I am a competitor and I make no apologies for saying I don’t just want to finish, but I want to finish strong. All the training, the patience builds up to the big day. I am thankful that my family is going to be there along the way; granted they will be tailgating enjoying mimosas while I’ll hoof it out on the pavement.
I cannot thank everyone enough for their advice and well wishes. I will need all the encouragement. No matter what happens Sunday, I am proud to have stuck through training during the craziest of weather and schedules. Here’s to a solid race!
