I feel ridiculously prepared. Confident. But then some nasty thoughts crept in today... I felt really really prepared for my first marathon, and it all went wrong. But I learned some lessons, right? I definitely learned the nutrition lesson. The other lesson... well, I'm not going to dwell on it, because I'm throwing it out the window. My priorities have changed. I don't just want this:
1. "Don't be afraid to give up the good to go for the great." -Prefontaine
2. "Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” -T.S.Eliot
3. "You've. Freakin. Got. This." -EMZ
With all that said... I need some advice... while I travelled for the Princess Half, I had about a week to acclimate... it was also a half, which is a very different beast to me than a full. I'm worried about things like the time change. Being stuck with restaurant food that isn't my "norm" right before a big race. Things like that. I fly in on Friday for the Sunday race. Any advice you have, please leave a comment!!!
