Running Sunday!

With the Peninsula Marathon on Sunday I am being haunted by the usual suspects:

  • Nerves
  • Paranoia over my runny nose
  • Doubt as to whether I’ve put enough training in
  • Bloating which is the by-product of my carbo-load supplement

I seem to be firm friends with this list but I know I’m not alone.  What are the few things you battle with before a big race?

    Totally normal, I think we all stress about those things before a race. My 2 bigs added worries are:

    1) am i going to have a bad running day and hate every minute
    2) pls can i get through without having to make a loo stop

    But there is no better feeling when you reach the finish line and realize that all that stress was for nothing and that you had a great run 🙂

    How did the race go?
