First of all, let's be honest, you're sore. It's Boston and it's almost impossible to walk away from that race without fearing squatting down to go to the bathroom this week. Don't worry, it's normal. Here's some advice on how I try to recover from the marathon.
In running and in life, mantras — positive affirmations — are super helpful because they anchor you in the present and cut through any chaos and negativity in your mind. They help you to press pause on memories and projections, expectations and perceptions, so that you can more bravely go into what’s actually happening right here, right now. They help you find gratitude for the moment, no matter what it brings you, and to manage any challenge more easefully.
