The half marathon is this Sunday. I’m equal parts nervous and excited.  It was very difficult skipping Zumba yesterday and today but I really needed to give my legs somewhat of a break. I did run 7 miles this morning though. It felt good to get out there and run one last time before Sunday.  Tomorrow is a busy day so I won’t have time to think about Zumba or running. 

As for race day, my mom and brother were supposed to come with me.  My brother had to cancel on me earlier in the evening.  I’m disappointed but I understand his reasoning.  He has a family and responsibilities he needs to take care of.  My bestie will be joining us instead.  She’s the best… Always there when I need her. 

Race organizers have chosen to honor Boston by having us wear green or purple… of course if we wear the race’s red that’s ok too.  So I think I will wear my red race shirt. (They’re pretty sweet.) I’ll tie my hair with a green ribbon and wear green nail polish to show my Boston love. 

Off to bed… I’ve got an early start tomorrow.

Rutgers Unite Half Marathon here I come!
