9 Days and Counting
This half marathon has crept up on me. It’s hard to believe that I have a mere 9 days before I am going to run 21.1km.
I must admit straight off that I am under-trained. This was not the goal, but it is the reality. I was doing fairly well until life happened. I’m not using it as an excuse – really, I’m sure I could have put my head down and soldiered on – but August turned into a bit of a break for me.
I ran the 23km race at Squamish 50 this summer. It was amazing and crazy and hard – yes, I will eventually do a recap – and it wore. me. out. I took a good week off from any running and that kind of turned into a couple of weeks. And then we went to Disneyland at the end of August. To my credit there was a lot of walking, but it wasn’t training by any means.
So, the 29th will be a bit of a test. I know I won’t be fast. I know I won’t PR. I know I can’t be surprised by whatever time I finish in. But I do know that I will enjoy myself. I have a couple of friends running it (both the half and full). I honestly am quite excited about the new route.
You can still sign up if you find you’re in need of a race – they have the full, half, 5k, and kids run. But do so this weekend. Prices increase on the 24th!
If you aren’t interested in running or if you have a goal race in October please come by and cheer! I know I’m not the only one who appreciates a little cow bell!
