training for this marathon is the hardest thing i've ever done. physically & mentally. i'm probably the worlds biggest procrastinator & i've got a big time impulsive personality. two traits that haven't been so helpful during this 8 month process. not running once all week, then deciding to bust out 15 miles is no bueno. i've done this for two weeks in a row & ended at 12 miles both times, in tears & with aching knees & hurt feelings. i've got 7 weeks to go & tonight i'm feeling ................... like maybe this is never really going to happen.
