Mentally Preparing for the Manhattan Half Marathon
So why the heck am I doing this? I am doing this for myself. I want to prove to myself that I can do these insane things and come out ok on the other side. I also want to be awesome for my children. I want to show them that they can do anything they put their minds to even if it is insane!
The greatest part apart doing all this events is coming home to the warmest hugs and kisses from my kids. I feel like a winner when I get that giant group hug. The first question always comes from Big Al. "Where you been Mommy?" I explain to him what I did and he runs away and says, "Ok Mommy." Then he comes back and asks for food. HA!
So my plan for the next six days is not to think about the race but to think about the warm hugs and kisses from my kids when I get back home. That is my reward for kicking ass!
13.1 miles here I come!!!
