Heading to the start

In about 24 hours, I will be running my second marathon. I know I’d said I was only ever doing one, but I was kind of challenged (dared?) by a friend and I can’t resist a good challenge.

I wish I could say I’m excited about it, but I’m not. I haven’t really trained, I spend last week battling a cold, and (in all honesty) I’ve been in a sulky, feeling-sorry-for-myself mood for the past week, which means I’m less than excited about everything let alone running 26.2 miles.

But, I’m doing it. I’ve committed myself to it and I can’t back out now.

I’ll be heading to the train station in a short while so that I can make my way to Inverness for tomorrow’s Loch Ness Marathon.

I hope the weather improves. I hope my mood improves. And, of course, I hope my time improves.

Stay tuned for a post-race re-cap! (And feel free to send me some good running thoughts and prayers!)

Thank, Ramona! It was a great run and I am slowly starting to heal from it. Can’t wait for my next race now!
