Tomorrow is my first ever 5k! I never imagined it would be something I would do, but it is a goal I made for myself when I started trying to lose weight. Eventually I want to be able to run the entire thing, my plan for tomorrow is to finish without stopping. I’m going to stick to what I’ve been doing on my Sunday runs, and go one telephone at a time. I run 5 walk 2. And I use the term run, very loosely (sometimes is a walk in running position).
Last week, when I knew we were going to run 3.1 miles, I drove myself crazy thinking about it, and trying to tell myself that I couldn’t do it. At this point, I know I can, and so I’m trying not to think about it.
I want to keep myself busy. This morning I did an early zumba (since my hubby has to work late and we have no one to watch the boys, I had to go, or I would have driven myself crazy), this afternoon I plan to play, play play.
I’m sure when I wake up in the morning I’ll be super nervous. I don’t know why, I’m not running to win. I know I can do it, but there is still that doubt in the back of my mind. I am strong, I am capable and I know when I get to the finish line, which I will, no matter how long it takes me, by boys (all 3 of them; hubby and kids) will be there waiting for me. I can do this!
