So here I am, having left you all without my delightful musings, and we’ve fast forwarded . . . to a mere 6 days to the marathon.
So, thanks to my delightful friends, I have successfully met my fundraising goal for the ARL! YAY for woofs and meowsers! In more do-gooding news, Darren volunteered for the marathon today. I’m so proud of him. That’s where the hard work is — as a runner, my biggest goal for the marathon is to ENJOY THE RUN.
I’ve been nursing a sprained ankle, and after some sage advice from running coach Super Steve, I took off some time to let it heal. I also grabbed some KT Tape, which is absolutely wonderful – it has all of the support of a brace, but none of the bulk, and it seems to stay on quite well. I’ll put that to the test today.
I figure I might jot how I’m feeling down here, because it really is extarordinary — the amount of nervousness I’m feeling. Even though I know I’m ready. Even though I did the work.
Right now, it’s 90% mental, and the rest is mental.
