All that to say, we set out at 5:00am, encountered a drunk woman getting pulled over at about 5:30am, saw several dead animals, saw the first planes for the day landing at the airport around 7:00am, made a few rest stops, and ended up back at our house at mile 21 with three more miles to run. By that time it was already 9:20 and we had to leave soon for church. So, we ended up running two more miles and called it a day. I think we pretty much get the idea of what it's going to be like to run 26 miles =) I feel like I have been preparing for this race for a LONG time and I am so anxious and ready for it to be here.
I'm amazed by the fact that I can actually say I have run that far. I never thought I would be able to say it and make it through not getting injured. I really think it's because of our training program, thanks to Jeff Galloway. I highly recommend his running techniques to people who run a lot or want to train for a marathon.
My brother will be running with the American Cancer Society. You can check out his story here.
Only 5 more weeks and it will all be over. I can't wait til race day!!
