And it all comes down to this....


Less than 24 hours to go. I can't believe the time is here. Where have the last 20+ weeks of training gone? I remember setting this goal and it seemed so far away. But not anymore. It's race weekend. Tomorrow I'll be running my first full marathon at the Space Coast Half & Full Marathon. 

Last month I had to sit out my first marathon because of an illness and this is my comeback. My redemption. I'm prepared both mentally and physically. My goal is to finish with a smile on my face. Training has been fun, left me feeling fierce, and proud of myself. I want race day to be the same. 
I know the distance will be hard. I know I will want to give up at some point. I know I will cry (a lot). And most of all, I know I WILL finish the race and be a marathoner.
