I heard it from my family today: Oh Missey..this race is no big deal..its just a sprint..you can do those for practice now.
If there is one thing I have learned over the years of training and running races..no matter what the race
RESPECT THE COURSE..RESPECT THE DISTANCE!!
Its when people get cocky and think its "no big deal" is when you run into trouble!! I learned this lesson all too well during the Amelia Island Half Ironman last year. I figured I was running an Ironman in a few weeks so I had this race sewn up!! A few hours later...im in the medical tent with a reaction to jellyfish stings and a DNF.
You never know what will happen when you put on a race number..but there are a few things I know for sure...Im gonna go give it my best shot and run against my watch and nothing else..
As always..Ill keep you posted!!
