Okay, I'm getting some serious miles in these days. This weekend was over 9 1/2 miles, which is just so far! My trouble is I could hardly put one foot in front of the other by the end--my legs were so tired!
I'm not sure how I'm going to complete over 13 miles in less than three weeks! See my countdown on the sidebar, there are so few days left! I have some serious work left to do.
I did get some energy beans and used them this time around and I do think that helped. My plan at the race is to eat them every time they have water for us which is at almost every mile marker. When I ran this weekend I had them in the front pocket of my sweatshirt but I'm not going to be wearing a sweatshirt at the race so I'm not sure where or how to carry them. Maybe I should have gotten some shorts with pockets. I still have a few logistical things to figure out like that.
I'm getting really excited for the trip but a little nervous for the race.
