Two for Tuesday - Did you enter my giveaway yet?

This is going to be a short one, since I'm still completely stressed out at work and really have no clue how I'll get all this work done before I leave.

1. There is still time to enter my pre marathon giveaway! Don't miss out on some free energy gels and New York Marathon goodies!

2. 2 x 2 = 4! 4 days till the New York City Marathon.

Oh, and I really do need some luck...make that lots of it!

Any advice on how to kill pre marathon nerves?

@ RunningRonald: Thanks...nu ben ik nog zenuwachtiger. ;)

@ Dennis: Hahaha! Well...let's just say that I (fingers crossed) barely crossed the Half Marathon mark by the time this guy already finished. ;)

You've got this.

Nerves - schmerves. Sing a "wiggle's" song - that'll ease the nerves.

Yay!! Brooklyn is full of great crowds and 1st Ave, just over the Queensboro Bridge is just one big party! Don't let the thrill of all the spectators push your pace. It's easy to do, but resist cause there are still many miles before the finish line (where I'll be)!!

DISTRACTION! I find that keeping yourself as busy as possible helps. (Of course, while trying to give your legs a rest & eat healthy at the same time - it can be a challenge.)

no fear... Runner's Luck is here!! ;) You WILL get your work done and you WILL do AMAZING AT THE NYC Marathon this weekend!!! Just sayin ;)

Lots of good luck! Just relax and enjoy the experience. I stay calm by running short runs up to two days before the event.

I'm from South Africa and Afrikaans speaking. I can read and understand the Dutch comments and really enjoy doing that.
