Up next - The Monumental Marathon!!!

Ok, this is it.  Marathon #5.  It's funny because except for marathon #1, I feel less prepared that I felt for every other marathon.  Oh, I've trained if you've been following my weekly posts about training.  In fact, I've training more than I ever have trained but I still don't feel ready.

Perhaps it's because of my lofty goal?  Perhaps it's because I have such high hopes for this one?  Or perhaps it's just because the damn thing is hard no matter how many times you do it.

Anyway you slice it, I'm toeing the line as you read this whether I'm ready or not.  I'm not really nervous - I'm just not feeling it this time.  I'll do what I do best - ignore everything in my mind and just go for it and see what happens.  Regardless, I'll have Indiana checked off the list.

Full race review next week!!!!

Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!


  1. Nice job finishing! It was tons hillier than I remembered and after the flu and sinus infection, I gave up mentally at mile 19. Oh well, there's always another race to PR :)

  2. Feel the same way about my marathon in a couple of weeks, know I can run sub 3, but when you start looking at 2h50 and faster, I start asking question of my body...
