Two weeks and Counting
Saturday, November 01, 2014
Yep we are at T minus 2 weeks! What a journey this has been. I am not even sure I can put it all into words. The commitment to running time, the mess my house is, the time away from my family. The shoes I have gone through. The fears, the emotions the food, the tears, the people I now know I can count on to believe in me, even when I seem to forget.
Two weeks from today I will run my race, my marathon, my 26.2 miles this once 300 pound girl will go out there and run. It is my race, my pace, my goal, I am doing this for me, to prove the fat girl is gone and the strong girl is her to stay!
So this week begins the taper: and with the taper comes the crazies:
Not only am I experiencing these I woke up to 3 inches of snow on the ground. The first thing I thought what if it did this on race day, could I actually force myself to run in the snow, do I have gear to do that! So ok I am crazy but am I. I am fidgety feeling like I am not running enough. Cutting out half my mileage scary thought for me! Plus on top of those crazies, my car decided today to have issues! Another friend I have meet on this journey that is also running Richmond brought up another one. What if I catch a cold so I am stepping up the C this next 2 weeks!
So here comes the final chapter of my journey to become Richmond Ready.
Yes it does scare me, and for me it will be worth it!
For now dear friends,
