The day is almost here. The countdown is on.
In two days, I will be running the third marathon of my life. On Saturday morning, February 28, Ben Vos and I will be running the 26.2 mile Cowtown Marathon in Fort Worth, Texas.
We are ready to run. In fact, I have never felt physically better going into a marathon than I do for this marathon. I truly believe that we have put in the miles, the time, the hard work, and the dedication to be as successful as possible. In fact…
We have been training for 24 weeks now (6 months).
According to my best estimation, we have ran a total of 420+ miles during training.
My weight is the lowest it has been since college. (I’m not going to share how much I weigh right now because, frankly, it is embarrassing. A gym rat who loves to lift weights as much as I do and is 6’3” should never weigh this low.)
I am sure I will post about the race next week and share all the details.
As for the next two days, I covet your prayers. If you are in the East Texas/Fort Worth area, I would love if you came out to the marathon to cheer us on. It really is a festive, cool environment.
Finally, got any good tips or advice for us?
