I’m Surviving the End of the World tomorrow

4 Comments

So I’m running my third race tomorrow. Before the break of dawn my husband and I are getting up, into the car and driving the 1 1/2 hour to Kona. At 7am I’ll be at the start line for my second 10K race. I am nervous, but I’ve decided to just do this. I’m not aiming at a PR (but let’s be honest, don’t we all kind of want to do as good as freaking possible in all races), I’m going to have fun. And finish!

The race I’m doing is called “End of the World” and is arranged by Waverider Triathlon Club which is an organisation with the purpose of “encourage students of Kealakehe High School to live a healthy and active lifestyle”. Pretty cool and very suitable thinking of the location. Big Island and Kona is, as we all know, one of the greatest spots when it comes to triathlon competitions (IRONMAN).

I’m looking forward to run down Ali’i Drive and being able to look at the ocean as I run (my normal view is… lava.. and ocean in a distance).

But anyways. I AM nervous and this is what I did to calm my nerves this afternoon:

Day Before End of the World 1

Day Before End of the World 2

I’ve also been drinking tons of water and indulging in a LOT of chocolate (because… I’m worth it). Great preparations for tomorrow’s run.

 

Q: Anyone else out there doing a race this weekend? If so, good luck and HAVE FUN!
