I'm down to days before my half marathon and I can't wait. It was so gorgeous in Michigan today (55ish) that I rushed home from work to enjoy the daylight. I took my dogs out for a nice and easy 2 miler around the neighborhood and it was amazing how many people were out - kids bike riding and rollerblading, dads washing cars and families going for a walk.
It was nice to be outside and not have to think about bundling up. Today was the first time I've been able to wear by capri pants and not full length running tights this year :) It was also my first evening run since October. It makes me love daily savings time!
So excited for the half this Sunday! I'll be running a couple more times before then, just a few light 20 minutes each time. I just wish I knew what to wear for the race - with the weather change I'm just not sure yet.
My other question is how do I handle the timing before the race? I should arrive at the race no later than 530am (race starts at 730 and there's limited parking), which means leave my house around 445am, get up 4ish. So how do I pack food so that I'm not starving come race time? That's what I'm worried about....
At least the good news is that I'm not currently worried about the actual race distance - after my 12 mile long run a week and a half ago, I feel really prepared for the race :)
