It’s 7:15 pm and I’m a ball of emotions. Excitement, nervousness, pride, anxiety. They are all rolling through my body at the same time tonight. Why?

At 3 am I will wake up and prepare to make the 2 hour drive to Ashland, VA and run my first ever half marathon. In April of 2015 when I began running, I would have never dreamed that I would be able to, let alone want to run 13.1 miles at once. 

I’ve run the distance multiple times in training with times ranging from 1:48 to 2:11. Weather will play a big factor in my time and I’m ok with that. 

If you follow me on Facebook, I may try to go live before the race and possibly as I approach the finish.  I better get some sleep.
