It’s getting close, less than 5 weeks away from the Galveston 70.3 Relay. We ran 8 miles this weekend and I felt great, despite starting the run with a wave of nausea. I hate to admit it, but I haven’t spent much time on the treadmill this winter, so I was a little concerned with my ability to complete longer distances on the road. My legs were moving and I had no problems navigating the hills. I really believe the hours on the bike trainer have improved my run. I now have no doubt that I can complete the half marathon without a hitch.
We’ve been preparing for the trip. The flights are booked and sleeping arrangements have been made. Our schedule is tight and filling up quickly. I’m looking forward to visiting with friends and family, and of course, participating in the race.
