Happy Friday everyone!!
Well the big weekend is here, this Sunday I’ll be running my very first full marathon at the Rock N Roll Las Vegas Marathon.
Simply put, I’m extremely nervous!! I thought for sure that I would come into this race pretty relaxed knowing that I will surely finish and be looking to come in with a pretty good time. Well today is barely Friday and I feel like I’m going to throw up LOL. Obviously, with the milestones we surpass as runners, it’s expected that anyone would be nervous when you are attempting to race at a new distance. At this point I have to rely on all the training over the last few months and just go out there and have a good race.
The one thing I need to remind myself about is to make sure I take the time to embrace the first one. So often I find myself running with my head down chasing that finishing time. With this being my first marathon and no finishing time set in stone, I need to make sure I take in the experience so I can remember this one. Someday I’d like to go after a BQ and that would be the opportunity to put my head down and really click off some miles.
I would like to post some updates as Mrs. Schlub and I are in Vegas so we can bring everyone along with us. We will see what happens.
Have a great weekend!!
