Just Chill'in Out

I took a walk around town with my wife tonight, the air was fresh, just after a gentle rain. We still walk hand in hand after 17 years of marriage - kind of romantic really. Tomorrow night I want to run for maybe 45 minutes. My wife said if the weather is nice she might ride her bicycle and go with me. Wow! This will probably be my last run before Saturday, unless I go for a mile or two jog on Friday.

One more stressful day of work, then I am taking Thursday and Friday off, I want to do a little light work in the garden and just relax a little. Friday night we are going with our good friend Barbara (my blond Barbie angel) to an open air musical called ABBA Fever. A local theatre group is presenting dance and songs originating from the group ABBA (think Dancing Queen). This will be a later night, but we can sleep in on Saturday. We don’t need to leave for Mannheim until about 11:30 a.m.

All in all I am pretty relaxed about the run on Saturday. I am trying to watch what I eat this week - not too much, lots of carb’s and fluids. I am also trying to get to sleep a little earlier each night, I think lots of sleep is good this week. I suppose I will start getting nervous as marathon day draws near, but for now it’s cool.

Happy running!

My husband rides his bike to come out and check on me during my long runs. It is a nice distraction. :-)

Sounds like you are doing great in the days leading up to the race.
Sounds like your head is in the right place Jack. You are relaxed and mentally ready. Enjoy! Love the holding hands, too.
Sounds like you are mentally prepared for this and planning some good, restful days.
Ditto on the the good mental prep. Just think happy thoughts (like Peter Pan flying!). Gonna be a good race! :)
The musical sounds like fun. I saw "Bjorn Again" last year - they are a group that does all ABBA stuff. It was during stampede so it was funny to see cowboys and 70s stuff all together..lol. Seems like you are on the right track as your marathon draws near.
Best wishes on a fabulous marathon! It sounds like you're ready for the challenge!
