This year is the first time I've trained for a marathon and actually been 100% injury free on race day- and my heart is jumping with joy.
I've had some extreme Highs and Lows during this 14 week training cycle, but the good always overcame the bad.
I need to remember how far I've truly come this year- from barely maintaining an 8 minute pace for a 10K race in São Paulo, Brasil back in January, to getting a PR in every distance I've run in 2013. 8k, 5k, 10 mile, and 13.1
Sunday will be a celebration of a ton of hard work and dedication and I am so freaking excited.
I want to thank everyone for being so supportive and understanding during these last 14 weeks- knowing an entire running army has your back is a great feeling to have.
So this Sunday morning, at 7am as the gun goes off, while I start the journey of marathon #8, I'll be rockin out with my Foxes out. Thank you KIM!!
