thoughts on running the boston marathon in 2014
This year's a lot different. I'm getting married. I'm getting married very close to the actual date of the marathon. So while I'm running and logging my mileage, I'm also meeting with vendors, getting my dress fitted, picking out flowers, going to bridal showers + bachelorettes, and generally just stressing about that. I feel like I don't have time to stress about running.
So I'm not. I'm not going to put so much pressure on myself to do this. I know I can run a marathon. I know I will be able to cross the finish line. So I'm giving myself a break. Sure, I have a schedule, but I'm not freaking myself out over it. I'm incorporating a lot more yoga this time around, mostly because it keeps me calm and because I know it will infinitely help my body and hopefully keep me injury-free.
This year is going to be big, and I want to make sure I enjoy every moment. I'm truly excited to have the opportunity to run the Boston Marathon. But I'm also over the moon about getting married. So here's to enjoying it all, each step of the way (be it in glitter heels or sneakers).
