The work is almost done and I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. With days left until I venture into new mysterious territory I find myself excited, worried, and anxious all at once. Just 10 months ago I found myself at my first marathon at Disney World with the best running group of friends around. Now 4 marathons and 1 ultra later I realize what an amazing year I have had. Sure there have been some tears and heart ache along the way but none of that takes away from the excitement of doing something you love.
I am somewhat lost at what direction I will take following this event. I do know that I will taper back the miles for November and December and enjoy some good family time. Normally I always have a new goal in mind. Something in the distance that keeps my focus and training on track. Right now I am blank at what would be next but I am certain that it will include trail running and road cycling. Last night at the gym I signed up for a body assessment following the race. Maybe once that takes place I will have a better plan.
This weekend my husband is joining me on a 10 mile trail run. How nice does that sound? Both the 10 miles and having my husband with me. The weather should be perfect!! Sunday is 6 miles. Should have plenty of time to relax and maybe take in a good movie.
Thank you all for your awesome comments during all of this training. How great is it to share it with others that dream as much as I do. What a way to live!!
