My race is tomorrow. I've never ran a race before, at least an organized official one. I had always hoped to build up to a marathon by starting with a 5K, 10K, half marathon and then hopefully full. I have started training for a half marathon twice, one of the times I didn't get further than 2 weeks and the other I should be finishing tomorrow.
I originally started training to help lose the baby weight and then it turned into something a bit more. I learned I could push myself and see results. That the human body is an amazing thing. In school I minored in two things: Child Development and Exercise Science. I know what the body is capable of, I know down to the molecular level what it does during exercise and how to condition your body to certain degrees. But to learn is one thing and to experience is another.
The biggest struggle lately has been dealing with my feet. My Chiropractor adjusted them today (did you know you can adjust feet?!). And they feel better. Weird. That's what I'm most nervous about. Is having to stop running because of my feet when I feel good enough to keep going, cardiovascular wise.
