Linking up with Marcia For August Runfessions, thank you Marcia for hosting!
I runfess that I do not feel ready for this Half Marathon in Virginia Beach. I signed up because it was a weekend that my son would be with his father for the holiday, and those weekends are huge stressors in my life. I knew that we would end up at the beach that weekend, and Virginia sounded perfect. That was back in June, and 3 months later, I'm nervous and scared. I don't know why, I have run as much as I did when training for the marathon. Maybe my mind is louder than my training.
I have thought and thought so many times about Runfessing this, but if not here... then where? My ex-husband has started running, and I runfess that I'm worried he is doing the Hershey Half Marathon. The thought of it makes my stomach hurt and makes me want to throw up. I know running was not a sport created specifically and only for me, but it just irritates me. And The Hershey Half was my first Half marathon and I enjoyed it a lot last year. I don't want to be worried or thinking the entire race that he might be running behind me, or next to me... (notice that the possibility of him being ahead of me is not even a thought that crosses my mind) Which I guess means I should train to run it faster, just to be safe. I'm just being paranoid.
I runfess that I'm addicted to Nuun. I drink it after long runs, I drink it at work, instead of soda.... There is one tube of Nuun All Day in my desk, and two of Nuun Active at home. I feel Nuun has taken over where Soda was for me before.... but I guess it could be worse.
Should I cut it out with my running jealousy?
What is your favorite Nuun flavor?
