Part 1: Twas the Night Before the Party

I’m almost jittery I’m so excited for tomorrow. No matter what happens with my race, I’m just happy to be part of the race. It’s been a year of mostly consistent building with only minor setbacks, so I am feeling pretty good about reaching my goals. However, without giving up the drive to reach them or slacking in the race, I am still trying to focus on the joy of just being out there. Last year I ran pretty hard, but was still able to really rejoice and party along with Boston and the crowds the entire way. This year I do want to have a smile the whole way, but I want that smile to come through the focused and controlled face of giving it my all. I’ll be totally fine if I fall over and drop after the finish. In the ideals of Meb, I want to run to win tomorrow, that doesn’t mean winning the race, but it means running with my all and giving my best!
