In one week, I’ll be running through the infamous Wellesley Scream Tunnel, taking on the hills in Newton, and sprinting down Boylston Street. I can’t believe it’s only a week away.
My confidence is in a better place. My legs are reaping the benefits of the taper (40 miles last week).
I’m so excited.
I’m so ready.
Gotta get there first though! I was joking with a friend last night – with what happened two years ago on the Friday before the race – anything could stop me from getting there. Paranoia is in full effect! My body still has 7 days to do something weird! Ha, joking of course.
I just can’t wait to get to Boston and feel the magic.
Minus Cabo, of course :) She just wanted to pose in the photo.
I’ve run a lot of my long runs in this outfit and it’s proven chafe-free: my old xc racing buns/shorts, Nike tank, Native sunglasses, and of course my favorite Altra Intuitions.
I’ll bring a shlue of throw-away clothes for before the start. And depending on the temps, I might run in a long sleeve for the first few miles.
Weez read Nate Silver’s book The Signal and the Noise, so he’s got me convinced that weather predictions farther than 5 days out are unreliable. So I’m not taking Boston’s forecast for real yet. I won’t get curious till later in the week.
Do you debate with yourself a lot about what to wear on race-day?
