T-1 Rome to Marathon


Excitement of the last 2 days made me break some of the the “cardinal” Rules of Racing.

1. Don’t try anything new – I can think about of dozens new things I have done since we arrived in Rome

2. Save your energy, try and avoid walking too much at the marathon exhibition

3. Went for an early morning 20mins “leg stretch and warm-up run”, Rome’s Old Town made me forget everything; I started exploring, got lost and before I knew it I it was 1hr later!

4. Definitely did not carbo-load, but made sure I got a plate of pasta at the Pasta Party

Hope I won’t suffer the consequence tomorrow :-). Good thing is it seems my flu has cleared, hope I have enough reserves for this EPIC RACE!

I can’t believe it’s only a few hours away…

About Moerieda Mackay

Late to running and absolutely loving it! I'm married to my soulmate, Adam and blessed with 3 beautiful children. I am a Business Transformation and Innovation Professional and holds a MSc (Eng) in Industrial Engineering. Yip, a bit of a workaholic. I became addicted to ultra running whilst searching for that elusive “work-life” balance at the age of...40! I have no sporting background and with zero athletic ability running is by far the most challenging thing I've taken on but it has put me on a path of self discovery and serious transformation both physically, mentally and spiritually...and I love it!
