2 días mas until the Surf City Marathon!! Sheiza!
(PS I’ve been saying sheiza for awhile and just decided to Google it to see if it was a real word. Apparently it’s a German swear word. Whoops….)
So, to finish up my training, I ran 6 miles yesterday with a time of 56:31.
Today, I did 4 recovery miles. During those 4 miles, I listened to some 90’s music, saw a huge cockroach on the sidewalk, and was frightened after seeing a man walking. Does that ever happen to you? You’re in a daze running and look up not expecting to see someone…but there they are…like 3 feet away from you. This happens to me way too often…
And tomorrow, Matt informs me I should run 3ish light miles. I suppose I could do one more short run before I die the race.
In preparation for my death the marathon, I gathered 84 songs to hopefully keep me slightly entertained.
As I put together my super long marathon playlist, I made sure to include songs that would remind me of people. At first it just kind of happened, then I went out of my way to include some, such as Janis Joplin. My logic is this: if I hear songs that remind me of people, I’ll start thinking about those people and reminisce, getting very distracted. Distraction during 4+ hours of running seems like a great idea.
So, here’s my 5.4 hour long marathon playlist, if you’re at all interested. I had to put it in 4 different images because there’s so friggin much. From rap to indie to Justin Bieber, it has quite the range of genres. I mean, hey, I don’t know what I’ll be in the mood for on Sunday.
I’ll report back on Monday with how it went. Prayers are welcomed!
What’s a song or 7 you’ve been fancying lately and think I should add last minute?
What are your plans for this first weekend of February?
