Delayed Gratification

The first marathon is a scary event. That's why I'm trying to pad the experience with lots of good things as well. So that no matter how nervous I am or how bad the bonk is, that I will still be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

No more coffee. I quit coffee a few weeks ago, but have intermittently had a cup or two when extra tired or before a big run. I'm looking for that big burst in energy that a cup of coffee will provide after a two week caffiene detox.

Oldies but goodies. I frequently download new music before long runs. There is nothing like a new song to help me pick up the pace or run an extra mile. But now, I'm building up a collection of new songs to be listened to for the first time next Sunday. I'm already excited about this song.

I know it doesn't seem like much, but I love coffee and I'm missing it dearly. And the music, well I'm okay without new music, but man, oh man, am I excited to hear all my new songs. Hmmm, sounds like I'm trying to bribe myself a little?
