Music Monday: Back in Time for a Space Coast Marathon Redemption

This Sunday, I will participate in my second Space Coast Marathon. I attempted this marathon three years ago with an injury, which soured me from ever attempting the Space Coast Marathon again. I swore I would never run it again, but marathons are a lot like pregnancy. You forget the pain and soon you find yourself signing up for yet another one.

A couple of my friends and I made a dumb runner peer pressure pact by committing to a three year exploration of this race simply to earn the Big Bang Series medal.

Last year, I ran the half marathon and hated it. Obviously, I am jaded and I have a mental block for this race. However, since I was landing there again this year for the challenger medal, I decided to go for a marathon redemption.

But…

“to understand the future, we have to back in time.”

Although I’ve trained as best as I could, I have had my share of set-backs between the flu and a traveling husband, but thankfully no major injuries other than my always nagging plantar fasciitis.  Admittedly, I’m still pretty anxious about this marathon and I’m more nervous for this marathon than I was for Chicago or the NYC Marathon.

This time around, I have a few friends running the marathon with me and I also have few other friends spectating along the course who have promised to jump in and pace with me if I lose steam. Honestly, I believe the only way I will survive this marathon is with an MIB neutralizer memory zappers. I need to erase all memory of my previous experiences because I would love to avoid hitting any walls or horrible flashbacks about my first Space Coast Marathon.

From start to finish, Denise is Run DMT, a Tampa Bay marathon mom on the run trying to maintain an easy pace through it all between races and raising three beautiful, brilliant children (ages 13, 9, 4). In 2007, I discovered a passion for running and in February 2015, I completed my tenth marathon, however, I continue to train for a variety of races and triathlons. In my spare time, I founded Tampa Bay Bloggers, a hyperlocal blogging network.

    Gurllllll! You have already completed two extremely tough marathons this year. I think you’ve got this one. Don’t worry about last year or the previous year. Every race has to be ran in the present. And with so many friends running with you, I’m sure you’ll find the motivation and support you need to finish strong. Go Denise!!!
