Similar to the way I felt last month racing the NYC Marathon, I'm going into the California International Marathon with a smile on my face and levity on my mind.
What a treat! I get to run. Full stop.
Plus, it's a new course, in a city to which I've never been before, in a race where my husband will also be competing, then waiting for me at the finish...who could ask for anything more?
Just run. It's that simple!
To any readers out there who may also be racing, have a wonderful time and most importantly, HAVE FUN!
