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

do's
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
