When the meal was over we all had a quiet rest in our rooms and I meditated on the race. This is the time when an athlete feels all alone in the big world. Opponents assume tremendous stature. Any runner who denies having fears, nerves or some kind of disposition is a bad athlete, or a liar.
Gordon Pirie

On Sunday morning before the start of 2007 Standard Chartered marathon I was anxious, nervous I even went to the loos twice, the second time it was a false call. In a marathon anything can happen and you worry will you make it, will I get an injury. Your brain is in a spin. To calm down I spent time chatting with other runners.

Before a race, feafull thoughts are forever with us and you just have to learn how to manage fear. You cant eliminate fear 100% but you can control it. Talk with other runners, jog around and visit the loo.
