I’m going to have my first run in 2017 and it is 21km. Yes.. half marathon. Usually I like to start slow (aka, shorter distance) but last year I received notification from 2XU about loyalty rates and their finisher tee in 2016 was nice, so, without further ado, I signed up for 21km.
I haven’t been running more than 15km before the actual day, and has been traveling as well. Doomed. I thought. Plus, 2 days before the race, there was a discomfort on my right leg..
There was a little hope that the run might be cancelled because of thunderstorm passing from the day before. (But someone might work hard doing no-rain dance)
Nevertheless, I still did carbo loading and prepare my gears and sleep earlier. Gels (checked), bib (checked), attire (checked)
My brother who is happened in town made a comment as I’m about to leave the house. Seems like today is made for you to run.
Despite my heart is not ready for this run.
Turns out, it was a good run!
So, good reminder for myself is, whether you’re ready or not, just waltz in.. don’t think too much and enjoy it.. If you completed it, then good. If you don’t, then do prepare better for the next run.
Looking forward to more good runs in 2017.
