Okay, here’s a mental health update on this marathoner.
I have leathered up a bit in the past few hours. Not a lot. But some. I’m not saying it’s because of some of your comments and I’m also not saying that I teared up when I read them. But, I am saying that I’m ready to run. I’m still not looking forward to the weather. Which is pretty much gonna suck for me. I’m still not looking forward to how I’ll actually perform or do on Saturday but I’m gonna do it!!
If it sucks, it sucks. I’ve been through worse, right? This is physical pain that’s temporary, as long as I keep that in mind and as long as I keep in mind who I’m running for, I’ll cross that finish line. I probably won’t be smiling as I cross and I may swear at poor unsuspecting volunteers or spectators, but that’s okay. As long as no one actually texts me or tells me to leather up on Saturday, I’m almost positive I won’t stab someone. But no promises.
BUT, I’m telling you all right now… if it sucks. I’m blaming it on my sprained ankle!!
Until later… gotta run.
