Just two weeks before the marathon, I’ve hit a high point in my training. Am I in the best shape of my life? Definitely not. Am I running as fast as a Kenyan? Nope. But my tendonitis in my knees seems to have calmed down significantly (knock on wood). Two nights ago, I went for a 6.5 mile run, which was the longest I’ve run since February. During this run, I randomly got the feeling, “I’m going to finish this marathon…” I know it sounds silly, but I’ve been doubting myself. Somehow, two nights ago – I just knew that I would complete it.
And then again, today, I ran 4 miles with absolutely no pain in my knees. I’ve been carrying my camera with me these past few runs so instead of telling you any more about them, I’ll let you see for yourself why its so great to be REM-running around DC!
