My 1st half marathon is tomorrow! Woah. This day came up quick! I don’t feel as prepared as I should. And I didn’t follow my plan exactly how I should’ve. When I signed up for the race, I was running more and was more confident. And of course then life happens, in between. But regardless, I am pumped to run!! I have a goal time in mind, but honestly, I’m just planning on enjoying every minute of it. I am back on Cape Cod, with the serene landscape and quaint atmosphere. My parents and grandma will be there at the finish line. And I can’t wait to cross that line.
That being said, I think my goal time is 2 hours. Anything under 2 hours would be amazing. And if I run it in 2:10:something.something, I will be okay with that too.
There’s so much going on in my life right now that I really want to use this long run as a de-stressor. It’ll give me the chance to reflect on how my life is going to change in the next 2-3 months. I’ll be leaving my amazing friends and job to return to my home state to begin 4 more years of school. Everything is so bittersweet right now, in these last couple months in Baltimore. Where I am right now is sort of uncomfortable. But I remind myself everyday to live in the moment. I don’t even want to think about how it’s going to be the last week before I move. It’ll be filled with tears. Lots of tears. But I digress.
Time to charge up the iPod, garmin, camera. Time to add new jams to the playlist. Time to get pummmmped up!
Be back next week for a race recap!
