So here are some things that have been making me nervous:
1)The course is super duper hilly. I've run it twice now and the hills are KILLER!
2) The weather calls for 60% chance of rain. Hoping soggy feet don't give me blisters ; (
3) Not to be TMI but during the last few runs I've had some bowel issues that have slowed me down.
On the positive side, here are some things that boost my confidence:
1) I've run the course twice so I'm familiar with it and know what I'm up against.
2) I've trained on hills for the last 6 weeks since my treadmill broke and now my legs are getting better at taking them.
And the best most awesome confidence booster of all...Taber told me this morning that he is going to run with me the whole time!! I was seriously jumping up and down with excitement! With Taber there to pace me I KNOW I can hit my goal if I just stay focused and trust my training.
Also I will have the cutest cheerleaders on the planet waiting for me at the finish line.
Do you love his, "My mommy runs wicked fast" onsie?
My friend Kendall made it for him.
We both had babies a week apart in January and Applefest is our come back race : )
And can't forget the girls, they wanted in on the pictures too.
They were still in their jammies and rockin' the bed head but you can't deny the cuteness.
Pretty awesome motivation ; )
