Packed and Ready
I am so excited about the Women’s Half Marathon tomorrow. I am getting packed and ready to leave this morning around 10ish. I am looking forward to doing this with my mom and Melody. I will be running with a 2:15 pace group. I have never done that before and am hoping to learn how to pace myself correctly. I tend to go fast at the beginning then very slow at the end. Finishing at 2:15 will be a struggle for me but I am going to try to push myself.
I went ahead and packed my breakfast because I want to eat what I would normally eat before a long run. I have packed orange juice, whole wheat English muffin, peanut butter, and bananas! We will get to sleep in until 5:00 because our hotel is only 1 mile away from the starting line!
I am still hoping that I packed the right outfit to wear. It looks like it may be a little chilly so I am bring a white thermal to wear over my top. I can always tie it around my waist if it gets too hot. I am also planning on wearing the compression socks because I still have a slight pain in my calf muscle and the socks seems to help.
I do have a friend that is planning on running this race and hopefully I will see her on the course. It will be her first half marathon and I know Abby will do amazing. Good Luck to all who are running this weekend. God is so good to us and I can’t wait to have a nice long run with Him in the morning. We do a lot of chatting to pass the time and it since it’s close to Thanksgiving I am going to try to focus on praising Him for all that He has done and will continue to do. What are you thankful to God for?
