That’s right- it’s that time! The MCM is on Sunday, officially less than a week away. I’m super excited to run the race and to jaunt around DC with my parents and C from Friday through Tuesday. It will be most excellent.
I had my last long run, around 10 miles, on Saturday morning along Chicago’s lakefront with Jack, the recent Chicago marathon rock-star who posted an impressive 3:29. Our training run was nice, though the intense out-of-the-north winds I had to negotiate on my return home were less than wonderful.
Goals for the MCM? Depends on how I feel. Right now, the main goal is to break 4. I plan to line up with the 3:40s and hang on. If I have an awful day and run a 5 hour marathon, it’ll be the best 5 hour marathon I’ve ever run (and the only). It’s going to be THAT fantastic; I just know it!
Keep an eye out for the post-race recap early next week. Happy trails!
