Awww—look at those fresh-faced kids! Straight off their first ever (well, for two of us, at least) 1/2 marathon! This photo was taken right after the More/Fitness 1/2 marathon I ran with some friends last year which, despite the torrential downpour, turned out to be a pretty amazing day.
So, as I remember last year’s triumph, I’m starting to get super stoked about the one this weekend! Sure, I haven’t trained as hard. Sure, I’ve never run this course before. Still, I’m convinced it’s going to be an awesome day. Not to jinx myself or anything, either, but the weather is supposed to be smashing in Philly this Sunday.
And on top of the regular race day excitement, I’m also excited to be heading to Philly. I love Philly, and as I was packing my bag for tomorrow, I had to stop and ponder when the last time was that I was packing a bag for a real trip.
It was Prince Edward Island, people! THREE months ago! My, how time flies. That feels like yesterday and so far away, all at the same time…
Anyway, all I can really say is I’m excited. I’m excited for the trip. I’m excited for the weather. And I’m excited for the run.
Now I just hope my dad feels the same way….
Bis bald, friends! Wish us luck!
