It is 9 days to go until the big day! Today, I ran 12 miles from Natick to Wellesley and back. The weather was gorgeous 50 degrees and sunny. I ran with a close running friend of mine Jean who trained with me for our first half marathon. She found out recently that she got a bib number from the city of Newton to be able to run the marathon. I thought it was a great idea for us to run together today on our last long run (see a picture of her and I below from our first half marathon).
I am not nervous at all. I am more excited than anything to run this marathon. As Robert Frost said: “Miles to go before I sleep, miles to go before I sleep.”
