Philadelphia Half Marathon Through the Eyes of a Runner.

Soooooooooooooooooo……. Tomorrow! Tomorrow! Tomorrow!

 

I am soooooo pumped for the Philadelphia Half Marathon tomorrow! I am running it with an amazing woman and looking forward to getting my own PR! (not difficult seeing as I’ve only run one…. ha)

The feel and air about this large race is amazing! Yesterday when I went to pick up my race packet and check out the expo, you could feel the energy and excitement. It was one of those things that caused one of those giant ridiculous smiles that you can’t wipe off your face for hours and hours! The people on the subway, in the grocery store, and at work probably thought I was crazy….. But who cares! I’m ecstatic!

 

Walking into the convention center, I was greeted with a lovely sign, super pumped people, and plenty of running things! All “For the Love of Running!”

Then off to the photobooth, and getting a bunch of free stuff from the expo! Not to mention talking with some amazing people!

Ahhhhhhhhh! I’m super exitado porque va a ser una gran carrera!

See so excited I can’t even think in english! Then this morning I woke up to this:

And thought: “Oh goodmorning Philadelphia, I’m going to run you tomorrow!” And this is how:

I have decided because of this race, I love big marathons and such! I must continue acting on this passion for the rest of my life!

I’m so much more physically and mentally prepared for this race than the one in August! Now off to get some homework done, babysitting, and then bed before this race! Oh and did I mention doing the last day of my training plan? It’s carbo-loading time!

So all my fellow runners out there, let’s go run this city!
