7937: That is me.
That is my bib number for my first Half Marathon.
Two lucky 7 in it...that is not bad even though I don't believe in luck especially when sports is concern...it's the work that matters, the effort.
Today is rest day...I don't like rest days. I feel weird, tired, and that I am cheating my training plan. I know I need to rest. I think too much on rest days...I think about my long run on Sunday, my first double digit run ever...10 miles. I went and drove the course that I will take. It will take me to the next town! I have bought a different kind of gel to try, Clif shots energy gel, I know I cannot take the block ones..that does not go down easy enough for me. If that does not work then I will rely on water only or take a granola bar with me.
I have to decide if I take my belt or not. I am thinking of taking it and giving it to Bill when I see them around mile 6. I also have to decide what to wear, the temperature is warming up already, 76 degrees right now. The race is by the ocean so it will be around 50-55 degrees at the start and 60-65 at the finish. In the packet info they asked that we don't discard clothing along the course.
See rest day = not good for my head! I think too much!!!
Got to figure out what to do at basketball practice today. Those boys have a really short attention span!!!
Every year I watch the Oscars and I participate in a friendly pool so in order to get ready for this I rented 3 movies for the weekend
The kids are alright
Did you see them?
