My first race is tomorrow

I have been running for about 5 months now and tomorrow is my first official race, the Chattanooga 4 Bridges Half Marathon.

I’m excited but I’m also apprehensive. I just recently found out I have a hernia and so I haven’t really been able to run the two weeks leading up to the race. It’s unfamiliar terrain as it pertains to hills and I’ve pretty much ran the same area for the past 5 months with virtually no hills.

If it’s possible to feel completely prepared and yet unprepared at the same time that’s how I feel right now.

After this I’ll have my surgery consultation to find out when and for how long it will be before I can run again. It appears my running season starts and ends with the same race.

Tomorrow I fully intend to post my stats no matter how proud or ashamed of them I may be.

Wish me luck.
