1/2 Marathon weekend here we come…

This weekend is the 1/2 Marathon I signed up for a while ago.  I have been training and working for months, but am not where I feel comfortable with the distance.  I remember a time that 13 miles wasn’t SOOOOO far for me.  I hope this weekend to finish and feel good.  I want to make myself proud… I want to cross that finish line and celebrate with my friends.  I am excited and nervous.  It is sometimes strange to mix those.

I feel like I am being hard on myself being scared to run it.  I feel like I can’t fail, that it would be too much for right now.  I feel unprepared… undertrained and unprepared.  This week of extra stress and hard junk has caused my brain a lot of ups and downs.  My body has been punished- although it is smaller and skinnier.  It is never a good idea to lose a lot of pounds the week of a race or be dehydrated.  I think I can do it.  I need to do it.  I need to prove to my brain that it can just do it.

What will I think about for 2.5 hours or maybe more?  I am going to work out a plan for that and get music stuff lined up (I hope).  I broke my phone last week and it isn’t the one I would normally use that I am running with.  God help me!!!  I hope that I can write some next week on what my brain trekked through and what the weekend was like.  I am looking forward to Sunday afternoon and whatever that brings.

Send me mojo, love and energy.  I need it.  Comments and positive thoughts to get through this.  Thank you all for all the different boosts and supports… keep it up.

  1. So proud of you for doing this! I can’t even think about running down my street without getting tired! You got this! I was gonna say we would celebrate with ice cream when I get there Monday, but that is kinda counterproductive….heehee!…..lot of love and luck coming your way dear sister-in-law! Can’t wait to spoil our kiddos together next week!
