My taper this week worked just like it is supposed to work. I feel rested with fresh legs. I had not given much thought to this weekends Marathon in Oklahoma City. Just a supported training walk with 10,000+ other people. Now I feel excited. Two years ago the Oklahoma City marathon changed how I raced. I relaxed. I absorbed myself into every aspect of the race. I made a point to touch every child’s hand during the race that held it out for encouragement. I made eye contact with every child holding out a water cup. Letting them know it was their cup I wanted. It changed me. The race is about all of us. Not just me. I make a point to Thank every support person I can during and after a race. I am so pleased I found and added walking to my life. I have never felt this fit. I have never felt this good. The realization that my journey is not just about myself has made me a better person. It has made me ALIVE!
