I posted a comment on Run Like A Mother’s Facebook page yesterday, about running my first marathon this weekend and asked for any advice. While I loved all the comments – the running community is so supportive – there was one piece of advice that stuck out.
“ENJOY every second. You will NEVER have another "first" marathon. Live in the moment.”
So often there’s so much build up to a big event – the rush, the excitement, the travel, the logistics and even the fear – that before you know it the moment has passed and you’ve missed it.
Not me, not this time. Living in the moment is something I normally try to do but I know I needed that reminder.
I’m driving to Washington, D.C. today to run in the Marine Corps Marathon on Sunday and you can be sure I’ll be taking it all in ... definitely living in the moment.
