13.1 miles, here I come!
I’ll be up super early tomorrow for my first half-marathon. It starts at 8:30 a.m. and due to the wave start I’ll probably get going a half hour later (I’m in corral 24 of 30; last year there were 22,000 half-marathon finishers). I hope to cross the line between 12:30 and 1:00 p.m. Remember that talk of training months and months ago? Yeah, it didn’t happen. The farthest I’ve run is still 3 miles, so this is going to be a mix of running, walking, and slowly trudging along cursing Past Self’s laziness and lack of discipline.
I’m going to wear my participant t-shirt and finisher’s medal — assuming I finish — for the next three weeks straight.
