On Saturday I ran my longest training run on the plan I've been following, so from here on I will be running shorter runs before the race. The run on Saturday was 14 miles! It was one of those bad days I talked about in my last post. Asthma was definitely an issue, so I had to walk a much larger portion than I had planned, but I did finish it. I now know that I can finish this half marathon if I put my mind too it, even under some rough conditions. Hopefully the day of the race things will go a little more smoothly though!
Now I'm just trying to plan for the race and start thinking about packing. I am so excited for everything that's going to happen in the next couple of weeks. First, my birthday is coming up so hopefully I will have a bit of spending money for the trip. Then I fly to Disney, and the race weekend magic starts. The fitness expo sounds amazing and I can't wait to try out some new products. Then my first half marathon! After that I get to wear that medal all around Disney World and show it off every chance I get. I can't wait!

While I'm counting down the days I'll try to post some helpful tips for packing and planning for a race. Anyways, I hope everyone is having a fabulous Valentine's day!
If there's anything you're curious to hear about/ have me look for at the race let me know!
