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.


  1. You shouldn't be nervous, you've trained and sacrified and you're READY!!! Go get 'em this weekend and GOOD LUCK!

  2. Good luck this weekend. I'm sure you'll be just fine -- and Apolo will be crying into his skates.
