My motto for this week

I am getting ready for this weekend’s half marathon. The Air Force Marathon is at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio and I’m really looking forward to it. I am walking and swimming and making lists, packing and preparing and sleeping and trying to eat well. I am excited and I know I seem nervous. I probably am a little bit, but not because I think I can’t do it. It’s the good nervous energy that gets you through things and makes you perform well.

I have three goals: to match or beat my marathon pace, which was 14:23; finishing in a least half of my marathon time, which was 6 hours, 16 minutes; and crossing the finish line with a smile!

My goal is always to enjoy myself and finish whatever race I've started unless I injure myself. I haven't gotten hurt yet!

Also...I enjoy saying "carry on."
