Final Countdown

Posted on 2010.05.12 at 19:24

Less than a month away from race day and I am feeling exited, confident, and a little nervous. We did our last big walk this past Saturday, twelve miles! I think that I ended up doing a little more... I was on my ever-present quest for the bathroom stop.

Excited that I have made such progress, and that I've lost 15 lbs since I started my training!

Confident that I can make the full 13.1 miles in the allotted time! My current timed mile is 18:25, adding about 30 seconds to each mile.

Proud that I have gone without injury thus far, by being fussy when I start to hurt and performing preventative maintenance on my feet. Although I think I will need to be more thorough with my stretching.

Nervous, because I need company for the last few miles. It's boring out there alone. Music only helps so much.

Now, I do want to thank those of you who have donated already. You have gotten me over halfway to my goal! My goal to raise $2500 by May 21st, is attainable with your support. I've raised about $1500 so far. I've been making and selling the fingerless gloves. I've gotten permission from my regional director to dye my hair purple for the race IF I meet my deadline.
