Don't think about your run or race as a whole. Instead, find visuals or landmarks along the way and work toward them one by one. As a mother of a four-year-old boy, I look for parks and ball fields that remind me of my son. When I pass them, it puts me in a positive place mentally. As a cancer survivor, I also look for hospitals and cancer centers. They remind me of the second chance I've been given and to run like it’s my last.
One of the most emotional race moments I've experienced was during the NYC marathon when I ran past Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. This is where I had my own surgery, and knowing there were so many doctors and nurses inside helping to fight cancer was incredibly motivating and inspiring.
