Tuesday tapering and tidbits

I ran 271 miles since I started pre-training/training in January. 

I have learned that I can push through almost anything, be it pain, emotional distress, or physical turmoil. 

I have found my comfortable pace…and I am enjoying being quicker than I was 5 years ago.

I have realized that people will always want to compete with you, but your race is yours alone. 

I have found that people will support you, and stab you in the back all in the same breath…hold on to those who pick you up…the rest will find themselves laying breathlessly on the floor with a knife in their hand. 

I did this…all on my own, with the help of my eldest daughter and my wonderful gym that has a daycare to watch my youngest so I can get my runs in and regularly. 

I know, that I shouldn’t look at what I don’t have, but feel blessed with what I have accomplished. 

My race is Sunday…may not sound like a race to some who have done several marathons.  But this is a race/run to me, and I will give it my very best effort. 

Lastly, I will give kudos to those who have truly supported me.  I can’t wait to run this race with my sister.

  1. Every race is a race, no matter how long it is, and coming to something you've been working towards is a big deal. I'm excited for you! Good luck!!


  2. "may not sound like a race to some"……….well, I don't know who those "some" are, but a half marathon is 13.1 miles, and that sure sounds like a race to me!I'm going to be at a chorus retreat this weekend, but I'll be thinking of you on Sunday and wishing you good weather, clear roads, and just a bit of a tailwind to speed you along your way, Lady M……You've trained for this…..prepared for this……and worked DAMN hard for this……Now go on out there and enjoy the parade…..you've earned it!!!
