It's June 1st and we're already experiencing June gloom weather... I just hope this weather doesn't mess with knee pain management or asthma... We're making plans to attend the pre-marathon expo on Saturday and hook up with my brother, Karl, at PF Changs for dinner, provided he doesn't object... I've been trying to do easy taper runs but getting sick didn't help. Yesterday I ran on the gym treadmill for 40 minutes and actually felt refreshed afterwards. Perhaps that was mental. Everyone keeps asking me if I'm ready for this marathon. I suppose I'm as ready as I'll ever be since I've followed the books as closely as possible and heeded the advise of more experienced runners and my chiropractor. What ever happens, happens. I suppose all virgin marathoners go through some sort of anxiety or pre-conceived notions of Marathon day. I guess I'm looking at this marathon like childbirth, and hopefully the labor won't be that intense or long, and the birth will be crossing that finish line.
