For those of you who will be running the Chicago Marathon, this view will greet you .25 mi into the run. It sets you up with a moment of tranquility before you run the city streets, which zig and zag and ask the world of you. .
I'm alive, I'm just very badly burnt. Not really, but right now I'm exhausted and still have to go in to work in a few hours and trying to convince myself that I can. .
Yes, I bit off more than I could chew (don't worry, already asking for help with the rest of the bites this week). But I'm getting as much sleep as possible, all the nutrition I can, wearing my compression, drinking fluids. I have another body inside of mijne that needs me to be be careful. .
I know how to pace, I know how to fuel, and I will cross that finish line Friday night and rest like a champ this weekend. Thank you to the marathon for being a perfect metaphor for life. #mondaymotivation
