In 10 days I am running my first half marathon, the NYC Half. I am nervous, excited, freaked, worried and thrilled. I’ve wanted to run this race since I first noticed it 3 years ago. I wished I could run, run fast enough, run far enough to be able to finish. In 10 days I will run NYC, I will want it to happen, I will wish it will happen and I will make it happen.
My only goal is to cross the finish line, hopefully I will not have to crawl and will not get picked up by the bus that goes around to collect ‘slow’ runners.
In other NYC news I have decided (along with I Run Slow ) to do NYRR’s 9+1 for guaranteed entry into the 2013 INGNYCM. My +1 will be volunteering at the NYC Half expo, if you are going to be there on Sat 3/17 look for me.
Any advice for a nervous half newbie? Do you remember your first half? are you a nervous half virgin like me?
