Today was the 100th day of school for my school kiddos. Coincidentally, there are (only!) 100 days left until I run my first marathon.
Needless to say, training for a marathon is a daunting thing. But then again, so is training for a half marathon and I did that. And lived.
Pfft. What's a full marathon to a half? Well, Evelyn. It's twice. It's run a half marathon, then turn around and do it again. No naps. No ice cream chocolate sundaes. No.
I CAN DO THIS. I just need to stick to my training schedule and put in the hours. I remember last year being astounded at how quickly I could build up my mileage just by adding a mile or two on my long runs each week.
At one point I was elated to be able to run 3 miles at a time.
And then I was on my way to running 13.1 in my first half marathon.
26.2 miles. I CAN DO THIS!
And then I die or I go on to conquer the world.
