Starting to freak out a little

There are only 2 more Saturdays of training before my 1/2 marathon and I'm starting to panic a little. What if I can't do it? Yesterday was killer. Even though we started at 6:30am, it was hot and humid and by the time we finished the 8 miles I was miserable. The only thing that kept me going was knowing that my flip flops were waiting for me in my car. Running next to the equine center of the vet school was nauseating. Horse shit, humidity and heat are not a good smelling combination. Why am I doing this to myself? Because it feels so good when it's over.


  1. The adrenaline of the event itself is going to help you get through it. No worries. :) You can do eet!

  2. Wow...horse poop does not an idyllic running atmosphere make. That is a shame. I'm sure you'll do great though. I mean it can't get worse that poop, right? Things can only look up.

  3. Remember, the west coast is cooler. Ha! I don't know if that is true, but it sounds good in my head.
