This coming weekend I’m running my sixth marathon as part of Disney’s Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge. I’ll be running a half marathon on Saturday and a full Marathon on Sunday. Although I’ve been pretty negative about my running on this blog lately I’m really pretty happy with it. I’ve successfully increased my mileage and I believe that will translate into strong race times.
The weather is predicted to be ideal. It should be in the 40s at race start (OK, that’s maybe a tad chilly for me but I can deal) and rise into the 50s before the races are done.
For once I’m not nervous about the marathon. I wasn’t nervous when I ran Miami either but that’s because I didn’t care about that race at all. For this race I do care to some degree but I don’t know what to expect. In the past low or unclear expectations have resulted in the best race experiences I’ve ever had. If this were just a half or just a full marathon I’d have a better idea of what to expect but I’m really not sure where I stand for this event and I like that.
Now all I have to worry about is packing!
