This is it, after logging over 700 miles since April there are no excuses.
I am ready.
My instestines are probably died blue from Powerade.
I have consumed an entire box of orange GU.
I am on my 3rd pair of shoes this year.
I can describe to you where just about every mile marker on the bike path is located
I ran on ice, in the dark, through the rain, and the heat.
I put my time in, I am ready. One week from today, on October 4th, I will run 26.2 miles....nonstop.
It doesn't really matter at this point when I finish, just that, I know I can and will finish.
There is a ton of excitement and anticipation building toward this run. It will be a life changing accomplishment...no doubt.
Because of this training I have lost over 30 lbs. this year, I feel great.
The marathon will be great, I will do more of them, I already know this.
The support from family, the friendships I have made, and the people I have met that have kept me motivated are priceless.
Thank you, it has been a fantastic journey.
Stay tuned for race report and pictures.
