In honor of "Marathon Week", I will be sharing a series of running themed posts.
Why is it "Marathon Week"? Of course, today is Patriot's Day and the annual running of the Boston Marathon.
Closer to home, I will be running my first marathon this Saturday. In the world news, eyes will turn to Boston. Locally, there will be the hype and fanfare surrounding the big event that attracts close to 20,000 participants. I'll obsess over the fact that my training program only has me running a max of 3 miles before the race and I'll get antsy with nervous energy. I'll stalk the Weather channel forecast, praying for good weather (right now it looks to be a low of 49degF and a high of 64degF on the day of the race - slightly warmer than I'd like it, but really not too bad). I'll carbo load with friends, hopefully get enough sleep and hopefully just relax during the run.
