Race Week

It's finally here - the race is on Sunday and I'm happy to say that more people are going to be running with me - kudos to Beth, Andre and Ernest for stepping up to the plate. It's going to be a great day.

Apparently my love affair with my Nike+Ipod kit has taken over my life - I haven't updated this blog in a while. Running has been going quite well. I'm now up to 2.5 miles without walking. I think I'm going to do two more 2.5 mile runs before the race on Sunday. I'm a bit nervous about not doing a full 5k before the big day, but I'm hoping the other runners and my adrenaline will push me to the finish line.

I'm super excited about the race. I feel pretty prepared and confident that I'll complete it. I'm even thinking that I'll do it in a reasonable amount of time.

When I first started this training, I was unconvinced that I would actually complete the training and finish the race. The goal seemed *so* unattainable. But look how far I've come: the other night, I set out to run 2.75 miles, but I almost got lost and honestly, just wasn't feeling it. I ended up running almost 2 miles and when I got home, I was bummed that I didn't complete my goal. As I was talking to Ernest, I realized that I was upset I only ran (almost) 2 miles. 2 MILES! Just a few weeks ago, 2 miles was a MAJOR accomplishment. How quickly things change!


  1. Congratulations on all your accomplishments so far. You will complete the race, no problem. It's going to be an entirely different experience out there with other runners. You will be great! We're really proud of you!

  2. Thanks, Terra! I'm sorta proud of myself too! :)
