Tomorrow is the big day, marathon number 3 this year. I have to say that I am a bit nervous for some reason. This is the smallest marathon that I have ever ran and probably to least competitive field and I signed up very last minute. Though, I feel that because this is a bit weaker of a field that I should ultimately do better.
This is added pressure that I really haven't had during my marathon career. Other than the Fargo marathon I have never had a real hard goal or expectation that I put on myself. To make matters worse a friend of a friend that, is running the 12k, is the son of pretty much the organizer of the race and he said that I have a chance to win the thing, which has crossed my mind but I really don't like to put that kind of pressure on myself.
I have decided not to hold back and to give it my all, if that is enough to win than great, but if not I'm not going to worry too much about it. I have purchased the Bob Marley Legends CD and have been playing "Three Little Birdie" (Dont' Worry) a lot lately. Wish me luck I'll try to post results as fast as I can, especially if I do well.
