Marathon Friday Five

Marathon Friday Five

It’s Friday and I’m going to let y’all guess what’s on my brain…


The number of miles I’ve run this week! Tapering is no joke and decreasing mileage is important for your body to rest and recover before race day. You would think that resting is easy, but it’s just the opposite! My legs have been so antsy the past week and my two short runs didn’t quite cut the jitters. Today and tomorrow’s goals are to rest rest rest!


The number of hours until I’m done with work for the weekend and will have nothing but marathon prep and excitement on the brain! {Well at least 4 hours from when I post this!}


The number I hope to see first in my official finish time! Don’t worry, if something goes differently then planned and a four is the number I see, I’ll be okay with it as long as I run a positive mental race!


The number of days until I conquer my second marathon. I can’t wait!


The number of people I am focusing on for this run. This run is about me!
Okay let’s be honest, I’ll probably talk about it next week. I mean I have to let y’all know how it goes!
Today is race expo day so that will pump me up and hopefully allow for a bit of energy release! Hope y’all have a great weekend! If your interested in tracking me on Sunday, you can do one of a few things…
1. Download the Houston Marathon app on your phone. Select Marathon then go to runner tracking to see your options!
