I am NOT going to say 12 miles today was easy, but it was a whole lot less difficult than the 18 last Saturday. I am counting down Saturday runs to the marathon at this point. Only 2 more really long ones left before THE REAL DEAL! WOW! It is starting to get close!
I was talking with someone today and they mentioned being afraid they would be 'last' if the were to do a full marathon. Ummm, SO? I don't care one bit if I am last, I am FINISHING! Even if it means I CRAWL across that finish line. For me, this isn't any sort of speed issue whatsoever. This is about endurance and completing 26.2 miles.
