I "Feel" Like I'm Ready

Thanks to so many positive comments and prayers yesterday I finally reached the point where again I felt that I am truly ready to "run" the Honolulu Marathon. So many of my blogging buddies have left comments that have in one way or another had a very positive impact on me over the past several days, and last night at church it was astounding the numbers of people that were asking if next Sunday is the day that I am to run and they were all so upbeat, positive, and happy that I'll be running. Thanks to all of this wonderful support my body and mind seem to have merged and once again I truly do feel ready to "run".

Up to this point I had been having thoughts that I could "settle" for a walking marathon, knowing that I could finish that. But I've got the confidence back that is enabling me to "see" the finish. Thanks to all of you. I'm feeling great, I'm ready, I'm excited.

Bring it on!!!!!!!!

You've put your training in and your body will follow you're mind's lead. You will do fine, and if you have to walk just a little - so be it. But, I know you can Run this thing! Good luck and have a nice trip. Take lots of pictures!!

Hey Randy, good luck and I know your going to have an awesome marathon in Honolulu. Even though I'm still injured from my first, I have been toying with the Marathon Maniac idea. I am so inspired by people like you that just go for it and do it. I ran with a guy at Tulsa for a while that did a marathon the day before in Mountain Home. I could not believe he was running another the next day. To top that off he ran one two weeks before. Anyway, have fun and enjoy Hawaii!!
