Last Run Before the Half

My last run before my first Half Marathon.  After my Tuesday run I had decided to skip my mid-week run. I had to decide whether to run the 9 miles I missed or stick with the scheduled 5. I was feeling a lot better as were my knees. So I figured I would go out and play it by ear.  I took it nice and easy at first to see how things were. Everything seemed fine. The only problem was it was super humid, almost like a fog had rolled in. Visibility wasn’t that great. Luckily, it wasn’t hot but it sure didn’t feel cool either. After the first couple of miles I decided 5 was going to be enough.


After the run, I felt great. A teeny bit of soreness in my knees but much better. I’m feeling much better about the Half Marathon now.

This Sunday will be my very first road race, the Surftown Half Marathon!

I’ve never even run a 5K or 10K. I’m super excited and can’t wait. Of course, I’ll let you know how it went.
