I am always nervous about a run. It doesn't matter what the distance is or whether the course is easy or hard, I just get nervous. I have run two half marathons in the last two years. I am proud of that and I plan on doing more.
The Pittsburgh Half Marathon is only five days away and I am so super nervous. I am trying to remain as calm as possible and just trust that I will do well and I am going to enjoy the experience. This is my first Pittsburgh Half Marathon. Last year, I did the relay and when I was done and saw all the excitement and the finishers, I decided right then and there that I would do the half this year. There was no hesitation at all.
So, here we are....five days out from the race.
I am nervous but I am also very excited. I can't wait to see all the cheering crowds, the awesome bands and all the spectators. The atmosphere of this race is amazing. The cheering is so awesome and it really does carry you through the course.
I cannot wait to reach that finish line and receive the finisher's medal.
