After yesterday’s training run, this is incredibly fitting. I finally managed to do a six mile training run; something I’ve been planning on doing for a few weeks now. And for various reasons, some of them excuses, it hasn’t happened. I wanted to go Saturday, but my feet were really sore on Friday and still a bit sore on Saturday. So I waited, and went yesterday instead. At the end of my run, when my feet hurt and my back was a bit sore (I really need to start doing sit ups and more core work) I was doubting my ability to do the half marathon. I was even wondering if I could cancel. But you know what? I want that bling. I want the crown shaped medal. So I’ll find a way to earn it. Even if it means I have to alternate miles; and by that I mean do interval runs for a mile, walk for a mile. Some how, some way I’ll find a way to finish that run. No excuses.
