One week, two days. So... 9 days until the marathon. Today I ran 5 miles. When I put my shoes on I didn't even really think too hard about it. I stopped for the sunblock and the hat, but that was it. It wasn't epic. It wasn't challenging. It was "just" a five mile run.
In a lot of ways, I'm right where I want to be. I'm in a place where I can lace up and go out for a five mile run, walk in the door, take off my shoes and drink a glass of water while I make dinner. That's insane.
Crazy. But Awesome.
And while I typed this, a video played in the background that seemed, once again, to dwarf what I'm doing in a wonderfully inspiring way...
Check it out, but maybe have some Kleenex nearby.
