Oh boy, there’s no turning back now. 13 days to put all of my moaning and groaning, hill repeats, intervals, tempos, long runs, shoe testing, mental fortitude to the test. Am I ready? Who knows? There’s not much I can do to improve the outcome in 13 days. It would be akin to cramming for an exam the night before.
I do feel like I’ve come a long way baby! So even running and finishing the race will be an accomplishment. When I think about this, I get a bit emotional, since it has been a long road to the finish line.
For now, I’m just trying to avoid any injuries, maintain a base and stay healthy until race day. I also need to figure out how the heck I’ll make it to the start of the race and what I will wear.
I’m looking forward to taking a vacation from running. Bring on the turkey, the christmas cookies, New Years champagne toast! Too soon? Too bad.
This girl will run the world!
