Half Marathon Pre-Race Thoughts

A lot of my thoughts are pretty positive when I think of this race. It’s one of those things that I know I can finish, but how I finish will depend entirely on how I approach it mentally. I’m unashamed to say that I’m usually my worst enemy. I try to self- sabotage when things seem a little too good to be true, but with running that just isn’t an option. It’s crazy to think about how much this sport has changed my outlook on my body, mind, and life, in general. With running, I’m unable to give up on myself because once I do it hurts- physically and emotionally. There is such a high that comes with a good run. Shoot, there’s a high that comes with bad runs, too because at least I got out and did it. I get a short amount of time with myself and my own thoughts. It’s truly a game changer. Anyway, I’ll write another post after the race, but just know that running saved something inside of me and continues to do so.
