2 Weeks!

In less than 2 weeks (13 days!)  I will be running my first half marathon! And in only 11 days I will be in Disney World! I can't even begin to tell you how nervous/excited I am!

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!

  2. I am so excited for you running the Princess Half. I would love to run that race one day! I am not sure if that will ever happen though! You will do great in it. Just be confident in yourself and you WILL finish it with NO PROBLEM! My longest training run was 12 miles and I did that 3 weeks before my half! You will do GREAT!
