The love/hate relationship with training for a marathon

1. Obsessively checking the detailed hourly forecast on Intellicast, over and over, hoping this time that the temperature/humidity/wind/precipitation forecast will have changed to more favorable.
2. Prepping the night before a long run- laying out all running gear/making sure the Garmin is charged
3. Going to the store specifically to purchase Gatorade/Shot Bloks/gel/bananas/protein bars
4. Planning the route with running partner.
5. Planning where to drop water with running partner.
6. Convincing self that 12 miles is really more of a short run that a long run, after all, it's easy week!
7. Reading Daily Mile 5 times per day.
