Long runs all done. Taper mode for me pushed to the limit with very little mileage due to colds and coughs.
I know, i know, what a bad time to get sick. I’m taking all the necessary steps to come out of this — 2 days off from work, mega dose of vitamin C, colds and cough medication, antibiotics, water, pineapple juice, chicken soup, etc.
Family in NYC say weather forecast for the next week, all throughout marathon week, is very cold… BRRRRR…. I hope to be well enough to battle the cold on marathon day. I am hoping the marathon spirit and the earlier training will pull me through this. I am hoping to do better than 5:22 during my first mara at TBR Dream Marathon but then again this is a tougher course. I’ll be happy with just enjoying what might be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me. Praying all systems will really be a GO come Nov 7th. Lord, HELP!
One thing for sure though… can’t wait to have a fabulous time in New York, New York!!!
Can’t believe it’s almost here— my dream marathon, the ING NYC Marathon 2010. Preparations have been quite rushed on booking flight schedules, coordinating with family, researching and preparing clothes and gears for cold-weather running and going around.
Our marathon will be sandwiched with lots of sight-seeing and not too much shopping for the pink sole, i hope, We really got to make sure we squeeze in a couple of short runs in between.
Truly praying for a great NYC marathon experience for us both. What a great privilege… God be with us…
