Never, Never, Never Give Up!


I am nearing the end of my half marathon training as October 13th, my race day, is quickly approaching. Honestly I never thought that I would ever be able to run a mile, much less 13.1, so my head likes to play a lot of tricks on me. Today was was my last long run day before the race. It was 8.5 miles of wanting to quit. I know I can do the 13.1, so my mind was asking me why today's run was so important? I thought," I don't need this, just quit. You are tired and deserve a day off. You are prepared." I almost let it talk me in to calling Matt and getting a ride home, but I didn't. It was struggle, but I made it. I can do this! Bring it on runs, I'm gonna finish the 13.1 with a BANG!

Happy first day of October!

  1. 13.1 is about how many miles I've run in my entire life so far, let alone in one day! Good luck with the weeks of training leading up to your run!
