This Week I'm linking up with DC Trifecta Bloggers (Courtney from Eat Pray Run DC, Mar from Mar on the Run, and Cynthia from You Signed Up For What?!) Please Stop by their sites and check out other amazing runners giving their Top 5s!
1. Have fun and enjoy the Marathon. Back in April 5th, Holly from HoHo Runs commented this on one of my post
And The fact that this is My first Marathon and to have fun have stuck with me. And currently ignoring the fact that the Marathon is hilly for the first 11 miles.
3. I have no real time goal. My time goal is to finish this marathon. My Garmin race predictor says I could do the Marathon in 3:36:24... Excuse me while I laugh at how crazy that sounds... but I'm assuming my Garmin is expecting for me to do my best race ever, in a flat course, perfect weather day with rainbows, unicorns and flying shoes!
I have since plugged in my numbers at a few Race Prediction Races. Runners World said 4:25:20, and I'm ok with that. But if I finish at a longer time, I'm ok with that too.
4. See Roger cross the finish line. We have been training for Gettysburg since December, and this is also his first Marathon. A year ago, this sounded impossible.
5. Remember that I am running for those who no longer can. Dedicating my marathon to my Grandmother, Grandfather and my Nephew, all who are no longer with us.
