Inside my head…

I signed up to run a marathon in New Orleans. This is a sampling of my daily mental preparation.

“There’s no way I can run a marathon.”

“I can do it, I can run a marathon.”

“26.2 miles – you have to be joking.”

“I think I can do it.”

“It’s going to be hard and maybe scary.”

“I can do it.”

“Are you crazy?”

“Just a little further every run and I’ll have it.”

“No way.”


Some days it ends with “No way,” others, “Way.”
