Tomorrow, ladies and gents, is it.
I’ve been training for over 6 months and I feel 99.97% ready for my first half marathon. That last 0.03% of doubt consists mainly of the “what ifs” that have been swimming around my See ‘N Say brain.
What if I have to go to the bathroom?
What if I get this super duper migraine the day of the race?
What if I slip on a banana peel that one of the running Elvises dropped?
Fingers crossed that none of the above occur!
I’ve been telling friends, family and perfect strangers that I only plan on doing this once. Get it out of my system, mark #45 off the Bucket List and call it a day. However, while visiting the Expo today to claim my race packet and bib number, there was a tiny little part of me that walked past the upcoming marathon tables and thought: “How cool would it be to run in Dublin? Or Savannah? or Malibu?”
Then another voice says, “Whoa there cowgirl, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Get through tomorrow first.” That voice sounds a lot like my husband… and looks like him too!
I’m not committing to anything yet, but I am tempted to sign up for another one. Ask me again tomorrow. Preferably before my celebration drinks begin…
The Runner’s Expo is a cool place to go,even if you aren’t running the race. Vendors, games, free samples, FREE BEER and opportunities to do things like this:
See you on the flip side! Wish me luck!
