At any given point I am usually excelling at one or the other.
If not I'm bombing at both.
Apparently that one or the other mentality also fits for training for a race and fundraising.
I have raised way more money then I thought I would. I set my goal really really high and I've done really well so far.
Then there is the actual running.
I have been slipping in my long runs and mostly just skipping runs all together.
At first I wanted to just switch to the 5k but I told myself I signed up to do the half, I set a goal for myself and I'm going to do it.
I'm not trying to set any PR's or anything special I just want to finish.
Well finish and not die.
I'm actually going to have a lot of family at this race so I'm hoping that along with race day adrenaline will get me through.
I've looked at the course and honestly have no idea what to expect. I don't know the area so all the course looks like to me is a line down some roads.
I wish it was colored like red- this parts cool, green- this part sucks, blue- catch your breath here, orange- might as well finish now.
That would be more helpful.
One of the things I am excited about is that the first 3.1 miles I get to run with my neice while she runs her first 5k. So that's super exciting!!
So any words of encouragement, suggestions, horror stories are greatly appreciated!!
