Its getting close!!!

My half marathon is this Saturday! I'm getting really excited :). I can't wait to be surrounded by other runners. The excitement, adrenaline, shared enthusiasm. So many other people that love doing the same thing I do. We are all out there for different reasons, but the end goal is basically the same. Sure there will be those speedsters that will be running to win, but the rest of us will most likely be running to run.

I hope to beat my half marathon time from last year. I want to have a better experience and just enjoy myself. The forcast is for rain, so I'm a bit worried about that, but the temp should be pretty nice. And the scenery will be breathtaking as usual.

And my fabulous hunny will be staying at home with the kids so that I can get a good nights rest and prepare for a great race! He is so awesome and supportive of my crazy hobby. I love you, my hunny.

I think I better remember this post when I get to about mile 11 and start thinking "what am I doing out here, this is crazy!" hehe.

Pamela, I either get up insanely early or I run at the gym on the treadmill while the older two are at school and the youngest is in the gym daycare.
Saturdays I get to run a little later than usual because dh is home with the kids.
