Chill - Apparently, I am running a marathon in three days. Have you heard about it? It's like the biggest freaking marathon out there. Something like 47,000 runners are expected cross the start line of the NYC Marathon. And I will be one of them.
Oddly, I am completely unfazed by this fact. I haven't tapered (because my unorthodox plan said not to). I haven't checked the weather (although, several people have attempted to give me updates). I don't have a single thing packed (which is very unlike me). At this point, I am beyond chill. Maybe it's because I feel super ready. Maybe it's because I'm not grasping the magnitude of what I am about to do. Who knows? Either way, taper madness has forgotten to make a pit stop here.
Stalk Me - The one thing that hasn't eluded me is what I will be wearing on Sunday. And it looks a little something like this (although my socks will be solid black, not argyle) ...
So, if you are spectating and happen to see me, please call me out. And if you are at home, staring at your computer, please feel free to stalk me. My bib number is 30328 and I start in wave 2 at 10:10 a.m.
Solicited Advice - Have you run NYC before? Do you have any tips for having a successful race? I want to hear them. If not, then just tell me I'm awesome and that NYC doesn't know what's about to hit it.
