FUN THINGS TO DO THE DAY BEFORE YOUR FIRST HALF-MARATHON:
1. Get sick.
2. Read 10 gajillion books.
4. Feel a little better.
5. Miss a party. 😦
6. Get excited about running the half-marathon.
Yeah, I got that list from www.claires-life.com which exists nowhere but inside of my head.
Last night, I got a sore throat. So typical for me, to always get sick for the main events. (It’s a christmas miracle when I’m not sick for christmas) I wenty to bed at 9 and got somewhere around 11 hours of sleep. Wake up, take a shower, barf. All in a pre-race day for Claire. 😛
So, what did I do today?
No, I did not got on my 1.5 pre-race run.
No, I did not go to Walgreen’s to buy marker eyeliner and a bday gift for my friend.
No, I did not got to a costume party.
I read The Help and a bunch of other books. I slept. I fretted about my race. I talked to my BESTY who totally knows how to cheer me up. I read somemore. I fretted some more. I thought about hwo depressing it would be if I didn’t get to run my long-awaited race.
I went on the laptop…. a special thing I only get to do when I’m sick!! And looked through emails!! I got 2 from the half-marathon and if I was iffy about running it before then I was completely confirmed now!
Yes, I’m sick
Yes, I’m running that half-marathon.
I will be high on endorphins and truly runner atmosphere is the best atmosphere!!
I doubt I will finish in 2 hours. 😦 Oh well, there’s always next time!
Mostly, Iam super duper excited!!!
I will have TONS of pictures!!
Yes, I am in my bed and have been all day. Don’t let that trick you!!!! I am tough!!! 🙂 Oh yeah!!! 😉
( This is me pumping myself up for tomorrow!!!)
It’s fun being me
