It’s just four days until my marathon debut. I’m currently in Stratford, Ontario visiting my family before I head to Toronto to prepare for Sunday’s race. I’ve got a bounce in my step now that the training volume has come down.
I’m starting to visualize race day and to prepare myself mentally for the challenge of running the distance at a good clip. I trust in my training, and my ability to hang in when things get tough. I’ve been told a first marathon is special, regardless of how it goes, so I plan to absorb every minute of the experience and to look back without regrets.
I’ll be posting frequently this week, as I want to share this journey with all of you who have supported me along the way.
