The taper for #RWHalf and 5K continues. I ran 4.0 miles at a comfortable pace, no pushing allowed . I felt really good the entire run and could have easily picked it up a lot – surprisingly even up Steven’s Hill if I had wanted to – the hill that is my nemesis. I just seem to have a mental block about running up faster than 9:00 minute pace up that damn hill.
I am going to continue to run daily, during the taper, just slower and not as far as I could.
I just enjoy my runs too much to give them up and also, I think that getting out there and moving will help keep me loose and help me deal with getting ready to drive down to Pennsylvania on Wednesday and acclimate to a completely different environment and location.
I know that on Wednesday, after I get to Bethlehem, I am going to want to run to get the kinks out after an almost 500 mile drive .
Yes I am ready for the Runner’s World 5K and Half-Marathon! Now to just get down there – I am not known for my patience, even though I am getting better.
Also I can’t wait to meet so many of the people who I have been a part of my online running community and the other FitFluential Ambassadors who will be down there too.
