Well here we are! Race day is on Sunday and I think I’m ready. One of the lovely things about the California International Marathon is that it’s a net downhill. For those of us who’ve trained hard and long going up hills, this will be a change of pace. Check out this elevation!
To help with my race prep, I’ve been mentally rehearsing my race and trying to visualize my time as I cross the finish line. I’ve tried different scenarios and have tried to “see” myself being pleased with each time as I cross. My game plan on Sunday is to settle down, find my comfortable pace and have faith in my abilities.
Now go run!
