{Monday Motivation} Decide You Want It

Well, here I am, less than a week away from running my second marathon at the Marine Corps Marathon. The taper is starting to get at me a little bit but after a successful showing at yesterday’s Runner’s World Half Marathon I’m feeling ready to run. Since I started having some tweaky overtraining related injuries a few weeks ago I decided to let go of my secret time goal for Marine Corps. I shifted focus and decided I want to just PR and have a good race. I’m going to stick to that but I still want (hope) I might have it in me to go for that secret goal. It’s ambitious and I don’t think it’s completely realistic at this point but if I don’t try, I’ll never know, right? Good luck to everyone else who’s tapering this week!

  1. Good luck. I hope to run the MCM next year. I just finished my taper yesterday with my fall marathon.
    I had a “secret” goal also but I decided I would have more incentive to go for it if I told everyone. My secret goal was to BQ yesterday. It didn’t happen but I did PR by 13 minutes!
    Go for the gold, you just might get the silver!
