Totally under prepared but so stoked to be doing a half marathon. That’s how I feel about the SunTrust National Half Marathon that I’m running on Saturday. I’m not really under prepared, I just feel that way. I had talked before about how I haven’t really been following a training plan for this race, but have rather just been running. I’ve been consistently logging between 25-30 miles each week so I’m certain that I’ll finish the race. I have my fingers crossed that I will finish strong with no walls in sight.
Prepared, under prepared, whatever, I’m super excited. There’s such a buzz of energy at races. I can’t wait to feed off from that energy. I plan to tap it and ride the wave for as many minutes, hours, days as possible. Me and the race bug, we go way back. And this particular race….. I have been waiting for since I crossed the finish line of my first marathon back in October. So look out DC. Here I come!
Only wishing that the weather looked a little warmer! Check out my rocking new race outfit complete with a traveling sparkle skirt! And I’ll be back soon with a full race report and hopefully a new PR in the bag for my half marathon time.
