Yup, there ya go. I said it. I’m slightly terrified.
I go back and forth between being super excited and super terrified. Yes, I’ve done this length race 3 times before (but never with hills). Yes, I have trained more for this race than any other one I’ve done. Yes, I have an amazing support system. Yes, I am super excited about the whole trip.
But it is still scary.
It has been well over a year since my last half marathon. And it has been almost 11 months since my back injury. The longest race I’ve done since my injury is a 5k, but I have done training runs much longer than that.
I know I shouldn’t be worried, but I still am. I know that once I get there it will all change and I will just be a great big ball of excitement. But until then…. not so much.
What do you do when you are nervous about a race?
