Petit Run&Brunch aixois ce matin en très bonne compagnie ! 🏃🏽♀️🏃🏽♂️🍳🥞😋 .
On avait dit 8km, on avait dit rythme tranquille, et j’ai respecté le deal mais j’avais peut-être oublié de préciser qu’il y aurait une ou deux petites montées et quelques cailloux 😅 (fallait pas me laisser faire le parcours 🙈)
Bref, on aura mérité notre petit brunch et passé un bon moment ! 🙃
Merci à tous ceux qui sont venus et merci à @ibisaixenprovence pour l’accueil 🙌
Wish me good luck 😎
I got my start number, tomorrow at 9:15 with several thousands of same crazy runners we start from the Luzhniki stadium @moscowmarathon 😋
In 2017, 7.972 participants finished at the Moscow marathon. How many will be this year - I don’t know for sure, but together with 6 mile runners there are 21.000 participants expected @runcomrun 🤪
I was asked about the goal for the race. Here I answer ☺️
I want to finish in 3 hours 55 minutes. This is 5 minutes better than my result on the first and only marathon White Nights. Uh, let's see 😁
To reach this result my coach Ivan @vankabubnov advised me to run the first half of the marathon with pace 9'07 minutes per mile, and then, if everything is good, accelerate slightly to 8'51 🏃🏻♂️
Am I worried? A little...
It's not fear, it's pre-start excitement that helps me to get in the right mindset for the marathon 🧘🏻♂️
A little more adrenaline is added by:
🤒 stuffy nose (how are things on the sick time, Gleb?)
🧐 absolutely unknown route (I do not really know St. Petersburg, what to say about Moscow...)
😬 knowledge of what I shall expect (this is like a jump with a parachute, the second time is scarier than the first)
Well, tomorrow everything will be clear. I look forward to the start of this running holiday!

So incredibly humbled and proud of this crew who just ran their very first 5K this morning! These guys showed up for their training, implemented their run plans, and took a #noexcuses attitude. To see their huge ear to ear smiles crossing that finish line today is WHY I love running and our running community!! #proudcoach#bookit5k#cherryhillrunning
