Ever since the weather forecast posted. It seemed like you could divide the runners into two groups. Those that are freaking out and those who say the race is early and it won't be that bad. Regardless, its gonna be hot and its not going to be easy. At first I was in the freaking out group, but now I am a new third group i'm calling the: Bring it on group.

Why the change? Well, I decided I can't change the weather. It is what it is. What I can change is my attitude is and my preparation. The heat may slow me down on Sunday, but you can bet I will fight the conditions with every stride. Its going to be a battle on Sunday and I am ready for that battle.
For those of you who didn't know. I was fortunate enough to play baseball in college. When my coach thought you were mentally week. He would always yell....
DON'T GIVE ME THE LABOR PAINS.....SHOW ME THE BABY
What he meant by this is don't stress about the effort. Just get the job done. This is the attitude I will have on Sunday. I'm not going to spend time stressing about the adversity. I going out there Sunday morning and I'm gonna run my ass off for 26.2 miles.
IMPROVISE AND OVERCOME
