Today is officially race day!
I went to bed early last night because I wanted rest and I knew that I would be anxious and would have a difficult time getting adequate sleep in. Waking up a couple of times throughout the night didn’t stop me from jumping out of bed when the alarm went off at 4:55am.
I had prepared my breakfast the night before, a jar of overnight oats with half of a frozen banana, which is what I have eaten all throughout training and I knew that it would be quick and easy for me to eat and digest all before race time at 7am.
Even though I completed 13 miles last week, I am so nervous for today. Partly because I felt like this last weekend after the run…
And partly because I don’t even know why! I am going to try to make things as normal and as much like my training runs as possible. So, even though there are 12 water stops…I am bringing my own water. Even though there is a refuel food station, I am bringing my energy beans.
I have been preparing for 2 months now, I know I can do it. I am excited-nervous-anxious-scared-happy-alloftheabove when it comes to emotions!!
WISH ME AND LAUREN (one of my sorority sisters is doing it with me!!) LUCK!!
