The time to train has gotten a-weigh on me

10 May

Hello all!

It’s almost here…my first 10k! Two weeks from tomorrow I will be lining up for Ottawa race weekend with many (many, many, many) other runners. These runners will also include 3 ladies that have been motivation for my training the whole way through, including running a confidence building 5k a few weeks ago.

As the race looms ever closer I am getting excited! No matter what I run it will be a personal best since none of my races have been longer than 5k and my training runs don’t get recorded anywhere except my nike + app. Now, don’t get me wrong I am super nervous but in an excited, butterflies in my tummy way.

I am also starting to realize my training runs are getting fewer and next week will be time to taper. It’s funny how when you begin training you look ahead and think those runs will take forever to complete. It feels like there are hundreds before the race…but then you wake up one day and its time to stuff the excuses and line up with your pace bunny!

So folks, wish me luck. Once this race is done it will be time to get into training for my 1/2 marathon in September…but that is months away…for now.
