ONE MORE DAY TILL THE QUEENS HALF MARATHON

Well, tomorrow is the day. Hopefully the rain will hold off for the race. I think I'm ready, though I could have done without our cousins wedding last night. But we had a great time, I abstained from alcohol, wore flats, and was home by 11:30pm, but woke this morning tired, and with cramps in both my feet and calfs. ARGGGGHHHHHHH I knew I should have worn flip flops or something, or just not worn shoes at all. ARGGGGHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

Been drinking lot's of water today and will soak in the bath tub later. Hopefully I do not have any issues during tomorrows 13.1 miles. Just planning to run through the race as a training run, as my Goal Half is still the Staten Island Half on October 12th, which I want to run for time. But I am excited as, although I have run the disance before, I have NEVER run a half marathon. Should be fun!!!

Didn't get a chance to post yesterday, but had another great run with BR411 OUTSIDE; 4 miles around the pond. Honey you are really doing awesome. You set the pace, and kept it for a very consistent 9:45 pace for 4 miles. I'm very proud of you!!!!!!!! I have no doubt you will be joining me next year on some of the half's!!!!

I hate wishing hard training, hard running, runners "luck" as they already have well-earned "skill," hence, GOOD SKILL on your half mary!!!
