My half marathon will be here in 15 days, and I have one long run left to go.
I have a habit of psyching myself out before these long runs, which is why it’s best for me to do them first thing in the morning. When I complete the runs in the morning, there is no time for me to talk myself out of it! There is no time for me to worry about that phantom “pain” in my stomach, whether I have been sitting down for too long, or if I need to eat a snack or not. I just do it!
In preparation for my long run, I have compiled a list of blog posts from around the web that outline various ways to tackle your long run.

Katy Widrick: 5 Ways to Survive Long Runs
