100 Miles in April & Marathon Nerves

I got in 5 miles this morning to finish 100 miles this month! I know 100 miles doesn't seem like much to a serious runner, but to me, it's a big deal. This is my highest mileage month ever and I'm so grateful to be able to get in these miles injury-free.

And number 10 from my 101 in 1001 is finished!

That said, I'm starting to get a little case of the marathon nerves. I have felt really, really good through all of my training up to my 18 mile run, but the past couple weeks haven't been that magical. I'm going to just trust my training though and keep a positive outlook towards next week!

Any week before marathon tips? Since I'm running with 3 friends- one running her first 26.2 and two running their first 13.1, I feel like should be the helpful one, but I need to make sure I've got all my ducks in a row too!


  1. Like Dory says, "Just keep swimming!"! I use to be a runner but have long since gotten lazy and now reading your blog makes me miss it. You can do it!

  2. Yeahh!! What a great month of running for you!

  3. Just stay positive and consider yourself a serious runner! 100 miles is great for anyone!!
