Whatever happened, here we are in the 2nd week of July already and my half marathon is in 33 days. Yep. 33. A 4 letter "F" word comes to mind when I think about that. Am I prepared? hahaha no. Am I still going to run it. Yep. I have a month to get my shit together so that I don't literally kill myself on the way down the mountain.
There is a lake by my house that is 8 miles around. I am going to make that my long run now, which is terrifying but I am trying not to think about it. I am also going to try running to an audio book instead of music because I think that will distract me better lol.
Also- I have better friends than yours. Well I don't know, your friends might be awesome too, but last night, at D&D, my friend Tim gave me a gift. Knowing my love of The Oatmeal, he bought me a Blerch stress ball, and a few bumper stickers "to help me with my running". Um, most thoughtful friend ever! I have been eyeballing the Blerch stress balls and this sticker is going to go GREAT next to my 13.1 one in a month!
|I am too excited to put this on my car :D|
So yeah! That is how half marathon training is going :D
