Seeing as how I'm less than a month away from my marathon, now is the time for me to find random stuff to freak out about.
Currently on my mind? What if I don't love my second baby as much as I love the first one?
Running my first marathon was a life-changing experience. As the days drew closer to race day, I had a feeling of absolute euphoria. I had worked so hard and had run distances that I had never run before. Before I even ran a step of the race itself, I felt like I had already won.
And after I crossed the finish line with 26.2 miles behind me? Wow. I felt like I could do absolutely anything.
Will finishing my second marathon not be such a big deal? This time around, I don't have that lingering doubt about whether or not I can really run that far - I know I can. I've done it before, and I've trained for it. Will crossing the finish line be ho-hum? Or is every single marathon an exciting, passionate experience?
These questions are not rhetorical, you guys.
