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,

Sassy out!
