saturday’s 10k

I ran two miles this morning. Then I walked four miles with Sadie.

I’m nervous. This weekend’s race will be HARD. Most of all I’m afraid of the mental strength that will be required. It’s going to be tougher than any other race I’ve done so far.

In a way I feel like I could go on and on about how nervous I am. But I don’t really have anything to say. I’ll spend the next several hours envisioning myself crossing the finish line. I’m nervous. But it will be good.

One thought on “saturday’s 10k”

  1. I’m starting to understand how you feel as my 5k is all of a sudden sooo close! But like I wrote on dailymile I know you will rock it and have a great time running the 10k! It doesn’t matter how fast you do it, it just matters that you finish!! 🙂

    It’s amazing how much mental strength is required for running! At this point, physically, I could probably run 4-5 miles without stopping… but mentally, I can barely make a mile before my mind starts thinking negative thoughts and starts giving me reasons for why I should stop!

    But hopefully during your race you’ll have so much adrenaline flowing through your veins that you won’t need much mental strength to keep on going… plus the crowds and everyone cheering you on will also be a big motivator! Don’t forget that!

    Jess 🙂
