    Running in the 1/2

    Post  Rickster on August 17th 2013, 2:41 am

    On Sept. 1 I'm going to running in the Disneyland 1/2 Marathon and there are some days that I feel like I'll be ready for and someday I don't so if you could pray that I'll be able to finish (and get a medal) and that I don't injure myself while running it I'd be grateful.

    I remember running my first half marathon. I had the same worries. Run to the best of your bodies abilities. If you can't run the entire 1.2, don't be disappointed. It's crossing the finish line that matters.

    I pray God gives you the strength to complete the journey, and that it'll be a good witness to what kind of strength he can give us.

    For the past week I've been sick and I just tried to go for a walk and had to cut it short because I wasn't feeling well and I have less then a week to be ready (my taper period starts on Friday) and i'm seriously thinking i might not be able to run it.

    Don't kill your body to make this one. Listen to what it's telling you. No sense doing more damage now. Praying God gives you healing and wisdom to decide to run or not. prayers are with you one way or another.

    I am going to try and run it, you have to keep a 16 min per mile pace and I've been looking forward to this since last Oct. The worse thing that can happen is I get picked up by the pace car and I don't get my finisher medal.
