Pre Race Preparation

So thanks to Janathon, another running first for me. Running the day before a race., something I’ve never considered before. I’ve been round Harrods the day before a race I’ve even cooked pie n peas for 40 people the night before a race (fundraisng for rugby) but Ive never run. Still needs must if I’m to stick to my goal of running every day in January. So out I went, and so short was the run I felt like I was back before I’d  set off. Run done, it was pre- race prep time.

In all honesty I don’t know why I enter races, I only enjoy them once I’ve finished. Before every race I say never again, only to find myself posting another entry form once I get back. Then there’s the pre-race rituals. The same meal the night before (lasgane), same breakfast (weetabix) or the race won’t go to plan. Then there’s the lucky clothing, mass panic this afternoon when I couldn’t find my lucky running pants, panic over now!! So providing the couple of sneezes I’ve done don’t turn into pneumonia, I’m sure all will be fine when I line up for the Brass Monkey at 10:00am tomorrow.

1.34 miles in 10 mins and 52 secs , nice warm up for tomorrows half marathon.

Janathon day 22

Bring it on!

    Your line about how you don’t know why you run races, cuz your favorite part is when they’re over… oh, how I laughed! I am the same way, HA! I guess I run them because… I can. And I keep wanting to be sure I can 🙂

    I’m backreading, so I already know you did GREAT (spoiler for anyone reading in order, oops). Congrats!
