Marathon in 12…
After an amazing 12 miles today that flew by I am going from being super nervous to being very jazzed up for the Chicago Marathon. I was supposed to run those 12 miles on Sunday but after this wedding that sort of wrecked me I needed some rest. I took Monday and did some cross training and then hit 12 today.
So yes, I am a little off but I didn’t want to miss a long run and to be perfectly honest I’ve done my long runs off schedule but gotten them down. I’ve had highs and lows, a couple injuries and some of the craziest weekends ever.
So I have done everything I was supposed to but on my own weird schedule. In the end though 12 miles was a breeze which is really shocking thinking that 12 miles into my first half-marathon I wanted to lay down and die.
So 26.2 awaits me. How will it be? I don’t know. I do know that my boyfriend, my mom and some amazing Chicagoland friends will be cheering me on.
