I'm trying to be realistic about my race. Completing the marathon is within my grasp. Doing well isn't. It won't be my worst finish ever - thank goodness I got that out of the way last year at Chicago! It won't be my best finish, either, although had I not been derailed, I think that my PR was within reach. I'm not going to lie and say that "As long as I finish, I'll be happy!" I'm going to be disappointed if I don't do well. But, finishing is my first priority, and I'll be more than disappointed if I don't finish. (I initially typed some nasty cuss words to describe how I would actually feel about not finishing, but then I thought better and changed them to "more than disappointed.")
And remember my wishful thinking schedule of yoga and spinning classes? Um, yeah, I kind of didn't do any of that. Next week is another week...
