Will I make the bike cut off times?
Will my blood sugar cooperate?
Will my fueling plan work the same in training for the race?
Why did I miss those workouts?!
Did I train enough?
I haven't run a marathon. Will the pain I imagine be the same that I actually feel?
Will my now recovered fractured leg hold up?
Why did I feel great training 2 weeks ago and now my legs feel pressurized? Is this just part of the taper?
Will my body hold up?
Did I do everything I could have done to get the result I want?
Will I make the cut off times???!!
I don't want to let anyone down.
Can I actually DO this?
Will I cross that finish line?
The time is coming near and the questions are gathering like tumbleweeds in my head. The words I must repeat to myself to try and calm the mental storm, the words that will replay over and over in my head on race day: I WILL do this.
