This is my life.
I know I'll finish, but running is SO mental that there is a pretty good chance I would turn this into a "fun race" at the first pang of discomfort if I were running alone. However - I'm NOT running alone. I have a kick-ass group of East Nasties pacing me - my A-Team: Allison, Alicia and Ashlee. We're all shooting for a 2:00 race. My game plan is now to just follow them and hope I can hang on until the finish. We'll see how it goes!
Apparently, there are around FORTY East Nasties going down to race NOLA this weekend. So. Very. Cool. Also, I read that Mo Farah, Kara Goucher and Shalane Flanagan are all racing as well. Talk about elite athletes. Those are three of the biggest names in running! No matter how I do time-wise, it's going to be a great weekend!
