Penguin Marathon Strategy

Finish the same day that you start. Sounds pretty simple but 26.2 miles is a long way and anything can happen. You just don't know what the day will bring until its here. I read this in the book "Marathoning For Mortals" and it made a lot of sense.

"Long distance races are mysteries. I like to think of them as theater, plays in which I have my part, but i'm not given a script. I'm given my lines 1 mile at a time. Every new mile marker offers a place to take my role in some new direction."

So as I taper, I ponder what my role will be come race day. We shall see soon!
