Am I Ready for the Phoenix Half?

Short Answer: No.

And it’s tomorrow…. yikes bikes.

So so many of my plans have changed in prep for this half marathon, I don’t even know if I can list them all. The biggest issue I’m dealing with right now is:

I’m sick AGAIN!

I’ve had this hacking awful cold for about a week now and I can barely even breathe sometimes; its awful! I can’t believe I’ll be sick for another half marathon. It’ll be the third time I’ve done a half while sick. 3 out of 8. Those aren’t great odds.

I really wanted to PR on this run but, again, I’m back to just trying to get to the finish line. I had such plans and high hopes but I let sickness, family death, traveling, dating, and stress totally derail me. And I’m back to eating like a frat boy (that is,  not great.)

I know I can do it. I always know I can. I can run 13.1 miles. I’m just going to go in as positive as possible and take the pressure of a PR off myself. In the mean time, I’m taking every single pill I think will help in the slightest to kick this cold and I can breathe again.
