I’ve been training for the half marathon for a while now and I was never really going to back out but now I have no choice. Last night, my sister and I officially registered for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon in Philly on Sept 21, 2014. No turning back now!
And then I went for my running this morning which was 4 miles, a little longer than I am used to during the week. First off, I got up super early, completely by choice. It was nice because Teresa is already up that early since she has to leave the house for work so early. I was awake enough that I could run early than I have. I also planned a new route that was a real out-and-back, with no loops (a first for me).
It felt like I was flying on this run. Was it the excitement from registering? Or was it the fact that the entire first half of the new route was downhill? When I got to the point where I had to turn around I was a little disappointed. Was it because I wanted to see if I could run farther or because I didn’t want to run uphill on the way back? We may never know. I still felt really great on the way back although I did stop to walk for like a second. I blame that on the fact that I was changing my music, putting it back onto the three songs I had on repeat the entire time.
My real question: How is it only Tuesday?
