9 days

I'm getting excited!!! 9 days til my race and you know what? I think I'm actually going to be able to do it!

Last week on Sunday I ran 11 miles, and THAT is why I think I'll be able to do it, smiles galore thinking about it :). My time was 2:24:55 I was very pleased with that. Plus I figured out my race strategy for the half marathon. I'm going to run for 5 min and walk for 1 so 5:1. It gives me a break and I'll be able to pace myself better.

My first half marathon. wow. I think about a year or two ago I was on a training bike ride and I saw some runners and you know what I said while looking at their grimacing faces? "Why would anyone want to run - it just looks painful". Now I'm that person, although, I'm hoping my face isn't a grimace and more of a smile haha.
