Two weeks from today, if all goes according to plan, you’ll have finished the Rock N Roll Dublin Half Marathon. Two weeks from today you’ll get to see the results of 13 weeks of commitment, discipline, and hundreds of miles.
Because this is the point where your worry tends to kick into high gear, let me just say this: be present.
- DO NOT view a bad run as an omen of failure on race day.
- DO NOT obsess about the weather.
- DO NOT let the rest of life derail your training schedule.
Be present. Focus on the moment in front of you, and do what you can in each of those moments as they come.
The rest will just have to take care of itself.
