The fourth and final post in a series of observations, thoughts, and pep talks as I near the final days leading into the half marathon. If you missed my first other posts – check them out here, here and here.
Note to self, on the eve of your first half marathon:
You are ready.
Allow your legs to carry you.
Let your mind wander.
Trust your body, it’s armed and ready for the challenge.
Talk to Scott, he’s a good distraction.
You got this.
Breathe. Evenly. No panicking allowed.
Harness those butterflies for energy.
Remember, running is a privilege. Be thankful.
Enjoy every moment.
This is your time to shine.
Celebrate at that finish line (and beyond at the Wicked Half party, too).
Breathe in every last second – your family beaming with pride, your friends snapping pics at the finish line, your husband and friends running in lock-step with you.
You are ready. Be proud.
