I'm running a 10K for Smithfield's Health Days in the morning. It's a fun, family-oriented race and the distance isn't a big deal, but I still get nervous whenever I think about it. Is that silly? I think it's because I know I'll want to push myself and I know how bad that hurts. The course is up a canyon so I can already feel that hill. I keep telling myself I just have to put one foot in front of the other, but it's not helping!
Any advice to calm my nerves?
Do you ever get nervous before an intense workout?


  1. Wondering how it went! Nerves and all...
    getting ready for my "big event" in the girl is coming!
    Hoping you are well and your fitness is PEAKING~ how was the hill?

  2. Roxy! I can't wait to hear about that beautiful baby. Praying all goes well (or already went well).
    The race was great. 48:30. That's a PR for that course for me. It's 3 miles straight up a canyon. Fun but killer.
    I'll keep checking your blog for fabulous news!
