Should I Be Nervous?
Here I sit just 3 days from my first half marathon and I wonder if I should be nervous? I know that I have worked hard during my training. I have completed a 12 mile run. I feel confident that I can finish the distance. Recently I have had some of my fastest runs, and I feel confident that I can achieve my goal time (Again, you're going down Ohno!). And I honestly question if I am not a little too cocky.
My allergies have been horrendous with the start of the harvest season, but I have been taking Allegra and it seems to have worked with none of the side effects of other drugs. My asthma has started bugging me along with my allergies, but I have taken a few puffs of my inhaler and I seem to feel fine. My back still gets a little tired and stiff in the evenings, but I feel markedly better thanks to Dr. Jackson. But shouldn't these concerns be bothering me a little bit more?
I guess I am ready. We will just have to see how it all turns out.
