4 Days

I am gonna be running my ass off in 4 days for little kids with brain cancer! I am so freaking nervous. I did 10 miles back in October, but this? 13.1?? Scares me shitless! Thanks to work, family, and weather I haven't been able to train as much these last two weeks. I'm hoping that doesn't hurt me come Sunday. Pacing is 16 minutes/mile, and I am consistently under 14 minutes/mile. I'm bringing energy chews so I don't almost run out of gas at mile 7, (my big problem with the 10 miler). There's also a food station on course during this race along with the water and med stations. If I get tired, I'll repeat to myself, "Do it for the kids! Do it for the kids! DO IT FOR THE KIDS", because I'm running for the Noah's Light Foundation again. Sure, it's cheaper to just buy my way into the race, but this way? I pay back some of the good karma I have received over the years! It would be another medal on my wall, another test of my will, and another bucket list item knocked off the list! I wish the medals weren't styled in Frozen chic. I am sincerely tiring of that movie!

Oh, and I'm not doing a princess cosplay either. I'm going as an Agent of SHIELD, namely Agent May. (If only the hair dresser had gotten the color right!)

She totally counts as a princess because Ming Na was the speaking voice for Mulan!! 

Ok, enough whining for now. Time to hit the hay and get enough sleep so I can put in a mile or two tomorrow!!
