The Day Before

I have 1/2 marathon number #14 tomorrow morning and the old familiar nerves are back again.  Even though I know that you're not supposed to do anything new or out-of-the-ordinary on race day, I bought a new pair of socks and had to get new earbuds, a different brand than usual.

  • I still don't know what I'm going to wear.
  • I'm eating Ethiopian food tonight, which I already know is a huge mistake--gastrointestinally.
  • I just got a haircut and it's now too short for a ponytail.
  • I have a meeting after the race.  It's with a friend, but we actually need to accomplish things.
  • I've barely run outside since I got my new treadmill.
  • I ran ten miles last week and it was just fine.
  • It's a flat, fast course.
  • It's just a training run.
  • It's supposed to by 48 degrees and sunny.
  • I've done this 13 other times, why do I still get nervous?
Here's to Clam Chowdah at the finish line!

  1. Ethiopian food… yum! But, not sure I could eat it pre-race. Hopefully it didn't bother you!

    And, how did it go?! Great, I hope! I'm impressed that you've ran 14 13.1s!
