Today was supposed to be a rest day, but the skies were blue, the sun was shining, and even though it snowed a bunch yesterday and last night, the roads were ok. I decided to just go out and run nice and easy. I left "Coach Bob" (my Garmin) at home and my watch, and just ran. I focused on my form and staying relaxed and enjoying it, and it was a heavenly five miles! It did my head and my body a whole lot of good and was just what I needed this morning. It was really rejuvenating. Only five more (short!) runs until Salt Lake City Marathon!
Ok, so a week from right now we will be on the road to Salt Lake City, and I will be be less than 24 hours away from the start of marathon number three. Woo hoo! :)
Since there are so many smart, experienced, totally awesome people out there reading my blog, I am going to solicit advice.
With just over a week until my marathon, I am asking you to leave a comment with your BEST piece of advice for me... either for the next week or for race day. Even if you've never run a marathon (or even a race) I have no doubt you can come up with something. My five year old told me, "Don't trip". See? Even a five year old can offer up some good tips. :)
And as a thank-you for your advice, I am going to give away a new copy of "Run! 26.2 Stories of Blisters and Bliss" by Dean Karnzes.
I just finished reading this last night and it was a fun and inspiring read.
