The view from here
A quick update from my new digs in Toronto. I attended the press conference at today’s race expo, where I caught up with some old running buddies and took in the excitement leading up to the marathon. I balanced this off with some downtime in my hotel room: ear plugs and a nap.
Tomorrow morning is my last pre-race run— just 30 minutes easy with a few strides. Coach Trent arrives later in the day, so we’ll chat about a race plan before the mandatory technical meeting tomorrow night. I don’t feel nervous yet, which is good. Best to stay calm for as long as possible to conserve energy!
