Tomorrow I'm running my first 1/2 marathon ever. 21.1km or 13miles... I just went and picked up my kit that includes my race number and a tote full of freebies. The realization that I'm so not prepared hit me especially hard seeing a room full of fit runners. So I faked confidence and pretended I was as excited about the race as everyone else seemed to be. Little do they know I ran like max 3 times in the past 2 weeks, was sick and perforated my ear drum. Hopefully being partially deaf won't hinder my performance! Maybe they won't recognize me straggling at the back of the pack tomorrow..
I may post about the whole experience depending on how I do. Right now I'm just trying to get pumped up for the whole thing.
This guy's my hero. Don't be fooled by his goofy running style! Eric Liddell won gold back in the day for Scotland. Afterwards he went on to be a missionary in China.
