Six days to go. Six days until race day. I fully admit I'm a bit nervous. My training has been lackluster, my back has been twinging, and doubts have been surfacing in my head. I can handle the doubt; I handle them all the time. I can handle my back by stretching and not overdoing my training. It's the training that I can't get around. If I had trained more, I would have pulled my back more. But if I had done the right training more, I would have been better prepared. I'll go over the pros and cons of my training and race after it's over.
Until then, this is all I have to say:
I am Matt.
I am number 6635.
I am running the Bayshore 10k in Traverse City on May 26.
I WILL FINISH THE RACE!
