Marathon training starts in six days. This is the race of a lifetime, even though it will be marathon #9* for me. I've waited four years for this opportunity, and I am going to soak in every step and enjoy the ride. To be able to do so means I am going to have to work like a dog this summer and really, really hit all my training runs so I can reap the benefits of that work on November 7. Bring it!
*I originally posted that this would be #8 for me, but I had to stop and think about it before I remembered that I've done the full at Cowtown twice. Both were nightmares, so I guess I blocked them out of my consciousness!! But, this will be #9!
