Tomorrow morning I’ll be sweating away with thousands of other stampeding runners in the Country Music Half Marathon here in Nashville.
Truth is, I wish I was running the full marathon – I feel like I’ve got the energy for it, but my iliotibial band won’t cooperate. But I’m still excited to be able to do the half marathon because 18 months ago I couldn’t walk without getting dizzy.
I’ll update this post when I return from the run – but don’t expect an impressive chip time, because I’m not :) I’m simply running to make it to the finish line this time.
Update: As expected, my time was less than stellar (2:09:53), but it was a great run. Close to 30,000 fellow runners took over downtown Nashville, including my friends at the InnerStrength Marathon Group who ran with me and cheered at the end.
