Less than 48 hours away to my 8th States and 15th marathon; as now, weather.com forecast 60% to rain on Friday and 50% on Saturday. This is no good! BUT it’s possible to change… Last year, weather also forecasted to rain on race day in Corning NY; but it didn’t drop any during the race and turned sunny afterward … I am knocking on wood that weather gets better on Saturday.
Aside from weather, I also need some extra “energy”. I need some anger! Can anyone help me out? For those read my posts, you know what I mean. I need someone give me some $hits to get me run harder… I was thinking to poke on one of my exes, but that may create more after effect/dramas, so not a way to do it. I also was thinking to poke on Ban. Yeah, you read it right, Ban. I think that should do it - if I willing to; but I don’t really wanna. However, if the weather remains the same forecast on Sat; then may just do the trick. We’ll see …
On the positive note, Akron Marathon allows runner to instant post/update splits onto WWW and linked to this blog and to my FB account; so for those care, you can see my silly and slow splits on here - Live! (I hope)
At last, based on NY Times article, I should be able to run faster in races than in training; that makes sense!!! Right?
