race day again
I will post more in the coming weeks regarding parenthood and the like, but for now I thought I should post at least one more time on the eve of my sixth marathon. Knock on wood, I feel ok this year although I'm not shooting for that 3:30 like I was last year. I plan on lining up with the 3:40 group and letting things play out. I missed my last 20 miler due to a birth of our son (seems like a good reason?), but otherwise I was pretty much on track during this training cycle.
Thanks for all of your encouragement and support along the way...here we go again!! One of the new things I'm trying this year is to have absolutely nothing to eat within 3 hours of the marathon...the nutritional logic behind this was given in a recent podcast by one of the founders of Hammer nutrition. I followed this for my last several long 18+ mile runs and it worked fine.
See you on the flip side.
