Do I have a death wish? Am I crazy? Um, yup and yup. Apparently.
Vans is not entirely on board yet although he said he'd pace me for 3 miles.
This has been a long time dream of mine and yet, I am a bit nauseous at the thought of it. It literally took me two full days to find the courage to click "submit" on the confirmation sign up page. Even now, that it is officially "submitted" I am finding myself weak in the knees and a little dizzy.
Whatever. All I can do is give it my best right? I am training and I am training with a group. Most of my group is also doing this same race so why not? I might never be in the kind of shape I am in right now so I might as well just go for it. I am not looking to "win" and I am not looking to "place." I should take comfort in the fact that no matter what I will "PR" in this event. :-) No. Back to my first ever marathon "goal" my plan is just to finish. I know there will be lots of walking involved and mentally I am just moving aid station to aid station.
Boy oh boy . . . breathe, just breathe.
