On April 29, I will run (walk, crawl) a marathon. Spent tonight googling “first marathon stories”. And crying. I think I’m ready. My (experienced marathoner) friends say I’m ready. But HOW do you know you’re ready? I have the strongest will of anyone I know. But I still doubt myself in this.
So, maybe if I blog (silently) and then later publish this so someone else searching for “first marathon stories” finds it, they will know they’re ready? They’ll know the 3 weeks of “taper” and NOT running a lot are such a time of questioning yourself. That every single run you do won’t be enough to convince yourself, that yes, you are ready.
18 days and 26.2 miles to go. I plan to document both.
