It is only the Wednesday before the BIG DAY next Sunday and the butterflies are flying high inside my stomach every time I think about the upcoming marathon.
Am I tapering properly?
Is eating Chipotle for lunch today a cause for concern?
(I actually had a salad bowl instead...)
Will my legs be able to hold the pouding?
How am I going to deal with the hills of Cincinnati?
What pace should I start with?
Will spending the night at the Hospital for 5 days impact me in any way?
What pace should I keep during the hard miles of the race?
What pace should I kepe to finish off the race?
What else should I do in order to be ready for Sunday?
I really hope that I don't forget my running shoes when I leave Columbus sometime on Saturday to head South to Cincinnati... knowing me I probably will do something like that. Imagine if I forget the Clot Buster polka-dots... well that will not happen as I already stashed the jersey in the car just in case.
I am very much looking forward to do this race on Sunday but my heart will not be entirely in the race because I have to leave my better half at home in Columbus due to an entirely differnt type of anticipation the two of us along with our families are going through... more than keeping your fingers crossed for me and the race cross them so our Little Varga stays in the oven just a while longer...
Let's see if I can catch some sleep with all of these butterflies inside of me.
THANK YOU to all of you out there who have donated to the cause. You can still do by clicking HERE.
