Update on the RUN!

First off, I hate blogging right now because I do NOT want to put any blog entries above the amazing, sweet, perfect, compassionate blog entry my husband posted yesterday- what a beautiful surprise.

But...Brian and I ran the 5K route in Mahomet for next Saturday's race this morning!!! I ran outside in daylight WITH someone! I actually completed it too. I wasn't sure actually. It was windy, cold, SUPER sunny and the first 100 feet were all up hill and I was breathing heavy right away. I thought, "oh Shit, I'm not going to be able to do this. I freaking blogged about it so everyone knows now and I'm not going to be able to do it."

I kept breathing, I pushed on. I did it. Brian chose to run with me at my pace so I wouldn't get lost on the path. He mostly ran 100 or so paces ahead of me and I appreciated it. I told him that I was like Sea Biscuit and just needed to keep my eye on the prize and keep moving! He was my motivation.

Lots more hills than I'm used to but I'm a step closer to the race day and feeling good. Except I think I actually pulled a stomach muscle while stretching BEFORE I ran. It's getting worse and worse as the day goes along. Bri thinks it's all an excuse but....more to come soon!

Wow, you ran the course before the race?! Now that is a total Katie move. Now you know you can do it because you DID! Good luck on your race day, you'll be great!
