100 days. We have 100 little days to get our shit together and be prepared to run the oldest and one of the most highly revered (Paul Revered?! hahahaha) marathons of them all - the Boston Marathon.
NO PRESSURE AT ALL.

I am a decent runner, but I am not a professional athlete. One side of me is saying "You need to run your ass off - COMPETE!" Then, this other side of me (the wimpy, artistic side) is like "You might never do this again. You should just enjoy it. Soak it all in...wave at the crowd...bla bla bla. You're not going to win, so what's the difference?" THAT SIDE OF ME MAKES ME INSANE - WHAT ARE YOU SAYING?! NO!

This isn't new advice by any means. I think we hear and say this every time a race comes up - but the revelation is that the advice doesn't change when it is THE RACE on the line. We can only show up and do our best...in all things in life. Time to do work, so I can do my best when I arrive in Boston. Good luck to everyone else training and competing.
See you there.
