It’s Here

Well the time has come.  The Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon is happening tomorrow.  Ready or not!  I signed up for this race back in June and was training strong.  I had a great strong race at a Midsummer Night’s Run. Took a few days off and then things went down hill for me.  I got sick and with that and the time off after the race missed 2 weeks of training.  I got back at it for about a week or so and then injured my ankle.  With that injury I missed another 2 full weeks of training.
I did some pool running but I mostly felt sorry for myself.  I have been going to physio for weeks trying to get things in check and did start running again with success but did not get further than 23km.  My August race was 30km though.  Now the week before the race my son paces his illness on to me and I have a horrible chest cold.  Lose my voice for 3 days even.  I am not 100% as I still have the cold lingering and tenderness in my ankle and my calf acting up but I am definitely going to give it 100%.  My friends have good faith in me, telling me I have built a strong base so that makes me feel good and the weather is looking perfect for the race.  Here is hoping that everything just falls in to place.
