the blackened toenails (& a few that have been lost all together) are just a few of my war wounds.
& checking the color of my pee, making sure i’m properly hydrated, has become an everyday activity.
these are just some of the things that occur when you are training for a marathon.
it’s crazy to think…
after weeks and months of training.
tempo runs, speed workouts, long runs – literally thousands of miles ran.
it all boils down to this.
one morning. one day. one race.
for me – tomorrow is that day.
right now, i’m a bundle a nerves.
i am literally riding an emotional roller coaster.
happy. nervous. excited. anxious. full of worry & anticipating what’s to come.
there are butterflies in my stomach & my brain is over-thinking every possible “what if.”
& yet… i’ve done all i can.
all there is left to do is cross my fingers, say a little prayer & run like hell.
wish me luck.
