first 5K - pre-race jitters?
Friday, July 13, 2012
I am scheduled to run my first 5K tomorrow morning. And up until yesterday I was so excited!! Now, I find myself wondering if I am ready.
What if I can't make it in the new terrain?
What if I haven't trained well enough?
What if I don't eat the right things for breakfast and I run out of steam only half way through?
And what if I come in last?
I am terrified of being last.
I know that someone has to be last. And I know that a few weeks ago, I couldn't even run 100 yards at a time, so even if I am last, just knowing that I finished is an accomplishment, but I really don't want to be last.
