Miles Run This Week: 3
Days until Newport: 9!
Well, I can count the numbers of days left until Newport on my fingers. While my training hasn't gone exactly how I planned, I'm also uninjured at this point, and able to run the 2 weeks leading up to the race, so I'm pretty stoked about that.
And, I think I finally don't care about my time. I could beat myself up, and worry about breaking 5 hours, but ya know what? Not this one. This is going to be about making good on a challenge I laid out for myself. This is going to be about the friends and the family who have supported me along this marathon of marathons. This is going to be about the views, the toughness of the race itself, and knowing that I have endured through 4, so why not 1 more? I'm looking forward to just running. And not particularly caring what my pace is, who has passed me, or friends who have run faster.
It's just me, my legs, and my 26.2 mile victory lap.
