End of taper week

Today was my last run before the big race on Sunday. This is what my run schedule looked like this week:

Monday: 3 miles @9:40 pace
Wednesday: 5 miles @ 9:50 pace
Friday: 3 miles @ 9:20 pace

I can't believe that I will be running my first half-marathon this weekend!! It seems like just yesterday I was all excited, nervous and shocked I signed up for Long Beach. I began my official half-marathon training August 9th

I'm happy to say that after three months of training I am ready for the race this weekend. I didn't stick to my plan verbatim, due to life, but I did give all I had on all the days I ran. I can run faster, stronger and longer than I have ever been able to. It's amazing what a body can do!

But I'm still nervous. 

During the summer I met a great group of women and they have been supportive, encouraging and inspiring. Today they brought me this:

What you can't see are the notes from each of them attached at the bottom of the balloons. The notes were words of encouragement for my first Half-marathon. Thank you, friends. This made my day.

I also want to thank all of you that have been reading my blog and for all the wonderful encouragement and tips you have offered, thank you and keep reading!
