Day 251.


Well, there's no doubt I pushed myself hard yesterday!  I can barely go up and down the stairs!  I'm happy, though.  If I can do 22 miles, I'm feeling confident that on race day, with the added excitement and adrenaline, I'll be able to complete the whole 26.2.  I'm also (very) happy that I now have 3 weeks to let my legs catch up with my brain.  My longest run this week will be a 12 miler, the next week 8 miler, then race week I only do 2, 3 and 4 milers, which will probably feel like a vacation!

Here's a great "Kick in the Butt", from Runner's World:

"I've learned that finishing a marathon isn't just an athletic achievement. It's a state of mind; a state of mind that says anything is possible."
