Tomorrow is a big day!

Wednesday, September 19, 2007

Okay, so the training for the half marathon continues...and tomorrow is the big day, then day I will finally run 10 miles! I've never ran that far before, I'm totally excited and psyched for this opportunity. I already have the route planned, and my outfit laid out. This is better than the first day of school! The best part is I'll get to watch the sunrise while I run, since to run for that distance I'll have to get up when it's still dark. I've been telling everyone about my plans, most of my co-workers are laughing at my enthusiasm. I feel like - if I can do 10 miles, what's another 5k to complete the half marathon? Of course, if you had talked to me even 6 months ago, I would've laughed at the idea of doing even a 5k!

    It was a good run this morning, I ran just over 10 miles in 1:46:45. A little slow for me, but the temperature dropped 25 degrees from the day prior and I was COLD, especially at first. I felt like I could've completed the whole 13.1 easily!

    I remember having feelings of anxiety mixed with excitement over whether I could run that far. 10 miles is a milestone in distance running. You will feel so proud and accomplished!
