Getting Ready To Race

Happy Friday! Instead of the usual Friday Favorites, I wanted to focus on getting ready for my half marathon THIS SUNDAY. This Sunday? YES. This Sunday! I love that I have been able to share my training and journey with you all.

So, this Sunday is race day! As you all know, I have been training for months. A few weeks ago when I ran 11.54 miles, my knees were in terrible pain the next day. I could hardly walk! So, I took a week and half break from running. Then, after I wrote Rainy Day Runs, my knee began to hurt again. I got really worried that something was wrong. So, I took more time off from running and let it heal. I began to do A LOT of stretches and kept icing and resting it. Last week and this week I went running, and I didn’t have any knee pain after. YAY!

I was so afraid that I wasn’t going to be able to run my half marathon because of knee. Luckily, my knee has healed and I am SO ready to run. This is such a HUGE goal of mine and I am beyond excited to achieve it. Accomplishing goals is an incredible feeling, isn’t it?

So, what am I doing to prepare for the big race? For one, I am carb loading! Lots and lots of carbs. I am also mentally preparing. Mind over matter is SO important and that is something I have learned throughout my training process. If you think you can’t do something, chances are you can’t. If you think you can? Then you will.

Wish me luck on my race, my friends! I can’t wait to write about how it went and share my photos with you all. 🙂
