Week 13: My Half-Marathon Training

May 28, 2013

We’ll, we’ve made it to the final week of training, my race is this Saturday!  All my training has led me to this moment.

(EEEEK!)

 

Tim and I rocked a 10 mile run today, in sprinkling rain and against some crazy winds – we finished in 1 hour, 49 minutes and I couldn’t be more proud.

When training, it really does come down to the quote above.  Tim has been my biggest cheerleader, and I’m so happy to have him in my corner.  But at the end of the day, he can’t run it for me.  I have to embrace each run and keep moving forward, even when it’s hard and my muscles start to hurt.  Like Dory says, “Just keep running, just keep running, just keep running, running, running.”

 

Here’s something important… my friends and I have come up with our team name; “Better Than Adequate”.  (A sort of grad school inside joke that stuck.)  Watch out world, we’re coming atchya.
