I did my last "training" run last night (although it sounds weird to call them training runs at this point) and I'm definitely feeling more pre-race butterflies than I have the past few months. By now, you'd think it would be old hat, right?
Maybe its the fact I've only gotten 6 runs in and usually I get in 12, that or my longest run has been 5 miles and I usually get back up to 12? For what ever reason, this Phoenix Half Marathon is starting to freak me out a little.
Granted I am excited - the course sounds beautiful (running through the AZ desert at sunrise?) and there is no increase in elevation - so on paper it should be an awesome run. But we all know that running is 95% mental and I've just not had my head in it the last few weeks. Hopefully this funk turns around in the next couple days and I can go out and rock it.
