Meeting Up w/The Bridge at Mile 4 of The Half
Looks like our weekend plans have changed again. We’re still going away to celebrate Adam’s BIRTHDAY (!!!!) but I will have time to get my long run in at home on Saturday morning which is very nice.
I can’t believe this weekend is my last long run before the half!
Today I received an email with all the details about packet pickup and race day info. WOW, it’s really almost here!
I would tell you about how nervous I am, but I think you already know… it’s the excited kind of nervous though (mostly)! : )
I pulled up the course map online today to see if it would give me any wisdom. The one thing I noticed is that The Bridge (my enemy) comes during mile 4. This makes me pretty happy because my legs won’t be too tired then.
I usually cross The Bridge at mile 1.5 on my way to the beach and that’s never really too bad. Last week when I crossed it at mile 9.5 on the way home I almost died. Hitting The Bridge only once at mile 4 is very manageable I think!
I am planning to walk to the starting line from my condo as a warmup, which means I’ll eventually have to cross the bridge a second time on my walk home… or maybe Adam will volunteer to carry me. That seems unlikely though! ; )
Can you believe November is almost here?
What is your #1 AND #2 tip for someone running her first half (I am asking for a friend…)
