The one thing before and during the race
But here's the passage I really enjoyed, and hopefully will help you tomorrow...
There is, however, one thing that I've always needed and which everyone else that I've ever known has needed, and that is concentration, both just before and during the race. Without concentration no one can be ready to throw all he has into the race and no one can do everything he is capable of in the contest. What printer, what business man, what editor, what school teacher wants distraction when he is working his hardest.
-from Marathon by Clarence DeMar
Work hard. Good luck tomorrow. See you after the race.
One more quote from DeMar...
Do most of us want life on the same calm level as a geometrical problem? Certainly, we want our pleasures more varied with mountains and valleys of emotional joy, and marathoning furnishes just that.
