Oh my, it is time! After six months of training (and getting sick and restarting my training) it is finally time for the rubber to meet the road. In just a few hours, I will be on my way to the Pittsburgh Marathon Expo and then in the blink of an eye it will be race day.
I haven’t had pre-race jitters in a long time, but I definitely have them today. I’m not even sure why because I don’t have a time goal for Pittsburgh (all of those winter colds derailed my training to the point that a time goal felt out of reach.) But I’m nervous about all of those hills and nervous about the weather and just nervous about my ability to cover 26.2. It’s been a while!
Stay tuned for my post-race report. Hopefully, it will be a good one!
