Last night was my last run before the marathon. It was full of emotions--relief (though the biggest challenge is yet to come), excitement, frustration, joy, sadness, and gratitude.
Relief for knowing the workouts are over and it's just the race left.
Excitement for the race! It's so close!
Frustration because I am unsure if I should wear my knee brace. I haven't run with it before, but my knee hurts on my long runs so I think I might need it.
Joy because I have come so far and done so much to get here.
Sadness because the journey is almost over.
Gratitude for my healthy body and and strong mind that got me here.
I enjoyed it.
PS...My workout ended on a high note when a guy said I look like I'm 18. Fabulous:)
