10 Miles Today

We decided not to go to Wilmington for the 10 mile race today because we just there for supper the other night and my husband has to go back twice next week. I am going to go ahead and do my long run today instead of Sunday though. Because I'm nervous and want to get it over with. I haven't run this far in a long time.

There's another race happening tonight that I'm going to be thinking about while I run though. Two of my cousins and my aunt are running their first 5K this evening! I'm so excited for them and it makes me remember when I started races. Those 5K were intimidating! I was so nervous and fretted about what to wear and water and everything else. Now, they're "just a 5K."

Maybe if I run a few more half marathons, maybe some day it will be "just a half marathon." And then, someday, "just a marathon." I doubt it, but we'll see.


  1. I have not msde it to that point yet, but this year I have the idea of running one fast and one for "fun." Yea, I'll let you know how that goes! Good luck with your 10!

  2. Your slow and steady strategy is the perfect approach. Enjoy the long run today.
