The marathon is approaching ever so quickly and this has me a bit nervous! (Ok, maybe more like ‘someone might need to tranquilize me on race day’ nervous, haha.) For those of you that don’t know, I have been training for my first marathon the past six months and will be participating in the San Francisco Nike Women’s Marathon on October 21st which is specifically raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Make a donation to cancer research if you’d like to help people with these deadly cancers out.
For the race I’ll be sticking to clif shots, gatorade, and sharkies for my race nutrition as these seem to be the easiest ones for me to use. I leave on Thursday for San Francisco, run on Sunday, and leave Monday afternoon. I’m hoping I’ll be able to see a bit of San Fran the few days beforehand since I’ve never been there before. I don’t think I’ll be able to update while I’m there because I don’t plan on bringing my computer (too much of a hassle.) I will for SURE post pictures and recap once I’ve returned.
To be honest I haven’t stuck to my training plan very much the past couple of weeks due to life getting in the way so really my goal will be to just do it. This is afterall for a cause much more important than a shiny finish time.
Once again, if you have someone you know that has been affected by cancer and would like me to run in honour of them (you don’t need to donate to do this) please email me!
