I’m slightly terrified

Yup, there ya go. I said it. I’m slightly terrified.

This time next week I will be in Santa Rosa, CA for the Napa to Sonoma Wine Country 1/2 marathon with Team Challenge.

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?
