Antsy Pants

Normally, the day before a race I'm cool as a cucumber.

This is not the case today.

It could be because of the fact that I haven't run a half marathon in over a year.

It could be because the forecast is for rain.

It could be because I will have to wake up around 3am to get ready and drive over an hour to make it to the loading buses by 5:30am.

It could be because I have NOT trained well at all.

It could be because I don't know what I'm going to wear.

It could be that I have to hurry through the race to drive another hour down to meet with an ear, nose and throat doctor to have my baby checked out so that she can get tubes (we've had 5 ear infections within the last 2 months).

I'm going with C) All of the above.

But I'll be running as fast as I can make myself.

GOALS

A) Sub 2:04:15 for a new PR
B) Sub 2:15:00
C) Finish in time to get Baby Girl to her appointment.

I will tell you right now, it's going to be C.  And I'm okay with that.

Can't wait to hear how it went! The fact that you can even do a half marathon and finish it is AWESOME!

Also my 2nd baby got tubes at 11 months and it was the best thing ever. Haven't had a problem with ear infections since and that was almost 2 years ago!
