I’m back from my pneumonia induced rest period. Last night I was able to get in a nice 9 mile run without too much trouble (see above for my happy, endorphin rushed face) but I’m really, really nervous about getting back in shape for the marathon next month.I perform best under pressure – in school I always left reports to the last minute. When I worked at the newspaper I always, always waited until the night before a cover story was due to write it (sorry Amy! Really, you are the best editor in the world…) and things always worked out just fine.
Unfortunately, my friend and fellow future Tucson Marathon runner Monique says, “cramming for a marathon isn’t the same as cramming for your college midterms.”
