16 weeks to go until my race on November 16th.
I have been dreaming about this training cycle for a while. I’m so excited. So grateful to be where I am right now. So grateful to have my gaze ahead, in the direction of my dreams. Forward from here.
I’m entering into this training cycle with the intention of pouring all I’ve got into it. I want to make every run count. To honor my body. To really listen to what’s in my heart. And take care with each and every moment – feel the work and the gratitude that follows and the dedication that comes from deep inside of me. Let it happen.
For some reason I feel like I am getting ready to go to my edges this cycle in a way that I never have before. I’m not sure what is causing this stir inside of me yet. I know that I have stood up to fears before and broken down inner barriers to get to the place I’m at today. And that I will continue moving forward, to grow forward, in that way. But it’s different this time. Something is different.
My goal for Richmond is to train smart and get to the start line injury free and strong and DETERMINED to go out there and run the race I know in my heart I am capable of running. No excuses.
Run fast. Run hard. Run smart.
Do what I love to do.
I believe I have a 3:10 marathon in me. And I am going to go out there and get it.
