Positivity… I know I can…

27 Aug

I had a thought that I shared with my husband over our weekend.  Unsure when if it was when I was buying my new running shoes or when we were out on a date.  However, I realized that running a half marathon isn’t scary anymore.

A few years ago, running 13.1 seemed unlikely.  I wasn’t sure if I could finish.  However, with my training runs in recent weeks, I know I can. Suddenly 13.1 isn’t scary. 26.2 is another matter though. I am terrified. Hopefully I will gain some confidence in my training runs as I hit 20 miles.  However, that 13.1 isn’t a matter of if I can do it, it’s how slow I will be.  That makes me very happy!  I will be on my way to at least my 10-miler medal!
