Well, it is finally the night before the Portland Marathon for me. I’m trying not be nervous for this “training run,” but I can’t help it!! Dinner with my husband and triathlon club definitely helped ease some anxiety.
I could not believe how much crap I had out for this run. Whatever happened to the days where people would just run with their sneakers and a pair of shorts?? Geez!!
- Swifts hat
- running shoes
- timing chip
- arm sleeves
- shorts or 3/4 length pants (I’m not sure about the weather)
- sweatshirt and rain jacket to wear on the way to start — It is supposed to rain tomorrow. ;(
- body glide (rain= chafing)
Goals: I just want to finish under 4 hours. With this last pelvic muscle injury, I don’t want to push it too hard especially considering my Ironman is in a month and a half. I don’t want to be re-injured. That would suck. A lot.
Anyway, good luck to anyone else running tomorrow!! Here we go!!
