legs feel full of energy like I was flying during my run. this is probably the first time in months that my legs have been fully repaired and stocked with glycogen. Looking forward to Sunday and mentally preparing for the sould crushing sting after 20 miles.

Are you familiar with the course?

The last 4 miles or so are on the University of Toledo Trail and it is very flat. If you have someone in your sights, you should be able to see them and incrementally make a move. Hard to say what things will be like at that point, but once you see the trail open to the University it's ~mile 25 and it's go time.

Weather looks cool, but optimal for marathon temps.

Good luck. Your training has been phenomenal.

Jason, Thanks! yes I've volunteered at that race in the past. My game plan is to stay very patient and no too fast or too slow then pretend it's a 10K race after 20 if I got anything left!
