My themes leading up to marathons, a wedding dinner and just the sweetest picture of them holding hands.

My themes leading up to marathons, a wedding dinner and just the sweetest picture of them holding hands.

Leading up to marathons I always have some sort of theme/mantra/goal that I focus on big time during the training/race. The year after my divorce, I went into marathon training with the mantra, “I can do hard things.” I can’t tell you how many times I had repeated that to myself (probably in the millions) but it was the best reminder to me and confidence builder that ‘I’ve got this and I am capable of so much more than I can even imagine.’ It got me through a lot of hard track workouts and long runs where I pretty much cried the entire time. Last year I did two marathons and for those training cycles my brain was so focused on my Sub-3 goal that I was driven by numbers/splits/times and chased after those numbers to get me through all of those hard workouts. Plus, I had a coach to report back to and that was really motivating to me.
