the anticipation

after 13 weeks and 300 miles 
it is finally here.  

Carlsbad, Ca Marathon

objective 3:30* on my 3rd marathon

as I reflect on the past marathon I am reminding myself of the following

power bar right before
drink or splash water on myself at every water station (without stopping duh)
consume gel shot at mile 13 and every 3 miles following
eat a lighter breakfast than last year
go to the bathroom 88 times before the race
visualize the race over and over tonight and the next 2 nights
soak up the ocean views along the race route

*a Boston qualifying time
