I’m a little further behind on my running training than I’d like to admit – the last double-digit run I did was at my half marathon. Ever since I scraped my hands up, I haven’t run more than once a week. Needless to say, I was a bit nervous going into this Tarheel Ten Miler – especially after L’s horror stories of the hills! When we were lining up for the race bright and early this morning, I legitimately had no expectations (I also forgot my running watch and iPod, but that’s a different story). I was even mentally prepared if I needed to walk from mile 8 onwards. But I ended up running really strong. Around mile 9, I started to feel a little tired, but the idea of finishing outweighed my burning legs, so I went for it!
To be honest, not a lot of thought went into my race outfit – I just picked things that were clean and short for the race!
Sound off: are you training for anything?
