>Looking back and thinking I had months to prepare for the half are now starting to make me sick. I’m not where I wanted to be in my original training plan, and after the past week and a half I feel like I’ve taken a step back. I was getting great miles in, and then life got to busy to take that step out onto the pavement. I have the next 16 days without any classes, vacations or set in stone plans that will take me away from my training. My hope is that out of these 16 days, I’ll run at least 14. I’m cutting it close to the race, but I think as long as I stay committed I’ll be fine. I know I can do this race, it’s my nerves, and the time left, they’re both getting the best of me.
