My final long run is now in the books.
Coaches and experts cast me dirty looks.

You ran 20 miles two weeks before race day?
Surely you’re crazy.  Better to let sleeping dogs lay.

I say three weeks is too long to put up my shoes.
I needed my fifth 20 Miler, I’m paying my dues.

I’m chasing Three Hours this time and not one second longer.
Through all five boroughs, I need to be stronger.

Stronger than Philly, Pittsburgh and Boston.
Stronger Than even my PR in Austin.

I’ve got 14 days left to dial things down.
Cut back my mileage, rest up and not frown.

It will be amazing how quickly this time shall pass.
On Sunday, November 6th I’m going to kick ass.
