I'm doing the National Half Marathon tomorrow.
My legs are still sore as hell, though a dozen easy-peasy miles out on the bike today did help work out some of the pain.
Plus I've been coughing like crazy for over two weeks due to spring allergies to all the trees and daffodils in bloom. My voice is hoarse and croaky and that Phlegm Monster has set up residence in my lungs.
And oh yeah, I forgot, I had to be at a school fundraising function tonight until about 9:30 PM and I have to be up at 3:15 AM for the race. But I was able to get in the silent auction there the cutest bike for Elisabeth and a painted footstool the girls made in their class, and I'm delighted with those! (I also got outbid on some deluxe local restaurant meals and Disney admission tickets, but there's always next year).
I think this half marathon is going to be, for a change, a no-time-goals, fun run day. It should be a beautiful day for racing-while-sightseeing -- sunny and everything in bloom. I know I'll probably warm up out of the stiffness and do some running in the middle of the race, and maybe even surprise myself -- but if I feel like I do now tomorrow, I'll be lucky to finish!!
Tomorrow's goal is simply to get the 13.1 miles done on foot and bring home the medal. I'll set ambitious time goals another day. Some races are just like that.
