As race day approached, I started to get nervous. The longest distance I had ever completed was 8.5 miles- that's very different than 13.1 miles!
But once I made it to mile 10, I knew I was going to finish- no turning back!
As a full time SAHM, this was huge for me. I struggle with balance and finding time for myself. Training for this race and reaching the finish line was the first thing I had done for myself in a very long time.
Before parenthood, I'd dread workouts. I could think of a million other things I'd rather do. But now training is a release. It's an opportunity to let off pent up steam and agitation. And a chance to get out of the house without kids!!
On that note...I need to sign up for another race so I can get away, er, I mean train!
