I’m officially two weeks out from the beginning of my first marathon training plan. As the starting line nears, I encounter myriad emotions: excitement, anticipation, apprehension, pride, doubt. Fear.
The positive emotions clearly outweigh the negatives, otherwise why would I be doing this? Running a marathon isn’t a requirement, it’s a challenge that I’ve chosen to take on. It’s an opportunity to take my love of running and challenge myself to accomplishing a new milestone.
I keep fairly detailed running logs across a plethora of platforms, yet I haven’t previously consolidated and combined them into a narrative. So that’s what I’ll be doing here for the near future. These posts are written for me, as a way to detangle my thoughts and package them up. But they’re also public, for anyone that may find value in them. Future posts will outline my training plan, and experience along the way.
