The night before the race

It has been an incredible experience! From the minute we got on the plane, to this moment right now. I just LOVE everything about New York. The lights, the sound, the people, it’s all amazing.

I’ve been doing lots of thing with ASICS and I can’t be more grateful. It has been full of fun. The day we went to the expo was a day I won’t forget. From the tears after getting my bib, to touring the massive ASICS area.

Now as I lay her in the bed, I’m thinking of all my hard work and all the training I’ve put in. Here we are…hours before my dream becomes a reality. This is it. Here is where I push it and give everything I have.

I have followed coach Kastor’s advice and ate my carb plate early. I will rest the night away and then prep for my moment.

I’m taking it all in in and I’m feeling at ease. No nerves, no doubts, just ready. Tomorrow I will run the streets of New York and live the moment I’ve been waiting for. The moment that was only in my head. The mental pictures of me running through all the places that makes New York so special.
It’s all happening…tomorrow.

Thank you all for the support, sweet messages, and words of encouragement. I will run with you all in my heart and I will run strong. This race has a special place in my heart, and it will lead my to the finish line. I cannot wait for the moment that I am at the start line, with my man Frank Sinatra blasting over the speakers.
