By this time next week, I will be done running the Bermuda Half Marathon. G and I were supposed to run this race as our "PU" (personal underachievement), but her injury still has her sidelined. So, instead she will start the race with me, then walk the course in reverse and run me in.
I'm not really sure how I feel about this race. I'm kind of like, "whatever." Usually, this is a good thing. The last time I felt "whatever" about a race was last year's Carytown 10K. I had run a 5K two days prior and I "thought" my legs were shot. I went out slower than usual, was strong through the finish and missed my 10K PR by a mere 17 seconds. It was the best I ever felt during/after a race. I'm really hoping that I feel the same way on Sunday.
Only 4 days and a few hours until we leave!!
(p.s. - I really hate how this whole taper thing is putting a damper on my quest to reach 1,000. After two failed attempts, I am beyond determined to hit it this year. I wanted to head out on a second long run this weekend (I know, crazy). I didn't. My head won out. Something about having "fresh legs" on race day...)
