The marathon is next weekend and I am feeling very coltish. I am antsy, jittery, and have too much nervous energy in my bouncing leg. I wish the race was this weekend so I can accomplish my goal and prove to myself that I can complete the 26.2 miles.
I just want to run, these low miles this week during the taper is great, but I feel like I am just waiting to hear the gun go off and and gate to open up. I am not competing to break records or win the Triple Crown. I just want to run unhindered, push myself farther and faster than I have ever done before. Race Day will be here before I know it, I need to relax and enjoy this low mileage so I can take it all in next weekend.
Just call me Spunkytariat from now on.
