Gearing up for the big day

So there’s this ‘race’ tomorrow. A half marathon or something. I’ve been training hard for 12 weeks. Physically, I’m more than ready. Mentally? I’m a basket case.

I keep waiting for the gauntlet to drop. When is an injury going to flare up? My foot has been doing well on my recent runs. My knee hasn’t bothered me in a few weeks. My digestive issues have generally subsided (though the stress of the upcoming race has brought with it some flareups).

Maybe I’m waiting for an excuse. An excuse to fail.


Get it together, kid. Rock it out. #dontdie. #theend.

I haven’t decided if I am bringing my phone with me during the race, but if I do, I will be tweeting away. Follow me there @amykant.

  1. I am one week from my first marathon, and I am feeling the EXACT same way. I don’t feel ready, even though I followed the training plan and racked up miles like it was nobody’s business. I have 4 runs until race day…so I’m pretty much done…and READY (I guess!).

    I ran my first half last year and can’t wait to hear all about yours (and see pics!) I’ve been stalking your profile without leaving comments for a while, so I figured today was a good day to comment!

    Good luck, and have fun! If you put in the training, you’re body is ready for the challenge!

    13.1! Rock it out!
