I’m not focusing on Sunday in any way, but it is in the back of my mind. I have a doc appt tomorrow which could affect my participation, but only if something is not right or not going well so hopefully everything is fine!
I’m totally unprepared!
Shoes: I need new shoes and I never ordered them and keep dragging my feet to go check out the running store. I’m not sure if my extra load here requires me to get more supportive sneakers. I think my alternative pair was causing problems with the shin splints! My main pair though is nearing 300 and my feet just hurt when I’m done running in them. I usually order online so too late for that, but maybe I’ll hit the running store before the weekend.
Support: I don’t want to make anyone come and watch me because my performance is up in the air. I may run 2 miles, I may make it through the whole thing. All depends on my body and what the baby’s plans are! My cousin lives in Philly though and will be there so she’ll come run / walk/ jog with me. It could take forever, or I could be done in 30 minutes. I have a feeling if all goes well at the doctor that I’ll just finish out the half unless I’m having major issues. I’ll just walk if I have to. They said if you finish a lesser distance not to take a medal, but I will somehow. I’ll get 2 🙂
Cold Weather: It is FREEZING here. Not knowing how much walking I will be doing, I am dressing in so many layers to make sure I’m superwarm – kind of like when you get dressed to go sledding and can hardly walk, but I’ll make sure I”m comfy. I’ll have my super duper Nike hatphones hat on!
Good luck to all of the bloggers running on Sunday especially Laurel who is making her debut in Philly after moving here from lots warmer temperatures. She’ll be running with her husband which is really cute!!
This week so far, I had a really good swim this morning and was able to do some faster swimming, and I ran/jogged 5.5 yesterday in the am and then 2 in the evening. I’m switching back to morning workouts for now, because my motivation to workout in the afternoon with this cold weather and darkness is not so high!
Well, good luck to everyone!!
