6 miles easy
A nice, easy run on the treadmill this morning while catching up on Teen Mom 2.
I hope everyone is sportin’ some green today! I am! I love SPD…one of my favorite days of the year (even though I no longer actively celebrate the holiday 🙁 ). It also means the start of March Madness and the first day of Spring is around the corner. YEAH!
Earlier this week, Aron wrote a post about the fear of racing. I completely related to her post and commented about something I read last year before my marathon. The timing of this article could not have been better. I was about to enter the taper period and was struggling with self-doubt. I knew I was capable of a sub-4:00 marathon but I knew my obstacles were all in my head. I was sitting in a doctor’s office mindlessly paging through an issue of Liberty Sports Magazine. I came across an article called The Myth of Positive Thinking. Needless to say I was curious. I remember a light bulb going off when I finished the article. This makes sense! I equated dropping the rope as “letting go” of any negative thoughts. Come race day, this was my mantra. I must have said “let go” a thousand times. For the first time ever during a marathon, my mind was relaxed and at peace. It really worked!
