It's hard to believe that in a few days you will run your first marathon.
Wow. Can you believe you're here? I remember it like yesterday. I left a comment about relaxing and embracing the run and letting the speed come to you with patience.
I am so proud of you. You get this.
You get that this isn't always about going fast. Sometimes this is about going strong. You're UBER Anne... and you're going to ROCK the Marathon OASIS de Montréal. I just KNOW IT.
BUT JUST IN CASE... Let's review...
Savor EVERY MOMENT. You only get to run your first marathon once. Smile for the camera, embrace the moment, cheer for the volunteers and spectators & THEY WILL CHEER FOR YOU. Savor it.
You've got a plan, follow it.
BE STRONG. You can do anything you put your mind to... not just pretty words. Believe it.
There is NO SUCH THING AS THE WALL. That "wall" you might encounter, it's all in your head. Beat it down and charge through it with determination and grit. Crush it.
You've got this .... Own it.
You are UBER Anne.
happy running my friend!
