When I think about the fact that the marathon is in only two months, I get both happy that training will be over soon, and I get really, really nervous. The training thing is a bigger deal, I'm so ready to be done. Long miles, early mornings... I am excited for the later, shorter runs that I'll be enjoying once November 6 has passed!
I have two long long runs to do - a 23 miler in two weeks and a 26 miler two weeks after that. We've done 20 miles, and this week we reduced our mileage from 22 to 17 in order to give ourselves a break. I have never been so glad to be doing 17 miles! Besides that, I'm just trudging through the monotony that is marathon training. Every year, I go through this period in August where I am bored to death, and the solution has always been to run a race. However, with the Annapolis Ten Miler canceled because of the hurricane, I don't have another race until New York. Hopefully, the weather cooling down will kick start my motivation.
Or, there's always this video:
