I run happy.

...and we're off!!

This is going to be a simple run, not too complicated.
 It's going to be fun, it's going to hurt and it's not going to be easy.
 I've done this one before(a few times)so I'm know what I'm in for.
 I've trained specifically, loved every second of it and intend to have fun and put it all out there.
 We all know that that is the the best we can do.

I did read one review of the course from a man who had done it multiple times.  He remarked,  "...at this section of the marathon, the course will be sweet to you."
I keep playing that over in my mind,  I can't wait to get to the sweet spot!  I'll be thinking of you all then, smiling and remembering why I love to do what I do.  All of it.

It's OBVIOUS that our lives are NOT just running.
We have loving families.
We have BIG HEARTED, smart kids.
Shelter.  Food.  Clean water.
Remarkable friends.
Good reads, good eats and fun times.

This will be one of those fun times!

Relaxed pace, smiles, FOCUS and let it flow.

7:30 Pace...
I believe, I'm ready!

Thank you and GO Team Taper!!!
