Morning Thoughts

I lay here in my sister's bed...waiting for the alarm to go off. I tossed and turned all night. Thoughts kept running through my head. All I have to do is run today. Why am I making it such a bigger deal than what it needs to be? Maybe it's because I've done it before and I know how long 13 miles truly is...maybe because I have a time I want to beat...maybe it's because I set up a bet with a co-worker.

Regardless of what time I run today, I am going to be proud of myself. I have worked hard and put it many miles and hours to not be proud. Today is a day of no regrets. I am going to run the race that is laid out before me and nothing else. I have nothing to prove to anyone. My next post will be my 300th post and I'm excited that it'll be about my run.

Goals for today:
Run
Pray for others
Take in the awe of running with 35,000 people
Be thankful for the ability to run 13.1 miles
And yes...I want to be my time as of last year. But if I don't, I'll still be proud of setting a goal and working towards it. I have a cold and I am hoping that doesn't overly interfere with my breathing on my run...it's all mental!!! I am in charge this morning.

Will let you know!!!
