We are now five days away from the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, and my nerves are going CRAZY!
- Part of this is all the extra energy I have from the taper
- Part of it is seeing warmer temps in the weather forecast
- Part of it is knowing how hard it is going to be to hold a 7:26 pace for 26.2 miles*
*Last year at the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon I held this pace for 22-miles before hitting the wall hard. It it hard to forget how painful that was.
