Saturday, April 24: day off
I'm heading back to Bainbridge now to prepare for the Bainbridge Island Half Marathon tomorrow morning. Still not feeling 100%, so I don't really know what to expect tomorrow. I do know that I will be watching what I eat tonight and NO COUGH/COLD MEDICINE TONIGHT! I learned that lesson 2 weeks ago.
Runners up Toe Jam Hill a few years ago
I don't think that I stressed enough how hilly this course is. I mean, its going to be ROUGH. The course elevation and incline is below, and parts are over 6% incline! I drove the course a few weeks ago and my car was straining on parts of it. Lets just say that there will most likely not be a PR in my future tomorrow. I want to think positive, but I need to be realistic and not set up for disappointment.
What did I get myself into??
The good news is that the race is in my hometown AND I will qualify to be a Half Fanatic!! To qualify for their lowest level, you have to do this:
1. 2 Half Marathons within a 16 day time frame.
2. 3 Half Marathons within a 90 day time frame.
So that is something to look forward to! Are any of you a Half Fanatic or Marathon Maniac? Hope everyone has a great weekend :)
