My longest run yet...


My first half marathon is tomorrow! I picked up my t-shirt, race number and timing strap and I'm ready to run!

I will be running the Grete’s Great Gallop - a half marathon in beautiful Central Park! Grete’s Great Gallop is part of the annual Norwegian Festival. I went last year and cheered for Sam when he ran his first half marathon. I'm excited and a bit nervous too. I know I can do the distance but it has been a month since my last long run so I'm a little worried about my endurance. I just need to remind myself that this my first half marathon and I don't need to break a course record. I just need to keep running.

I'm originally from Northern Minnesota and my Scandinavian blood is thick - and my mom is 100% Norwegian! So, the best part of the race is that afterwards when they serve waffles and bagels & lox and there are Norwegian folk dancers performing!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Good luck! I am doing a half marathon myself on Sunday. I don't think we get waffles at the finish though. :(

Hope your 1/2 marathon went well! Sounds fun to run in Central Park. (I'm such a country girl!).
