One Week To Go!!

Oh man I hope I’m ready for this!  I just looked at the schedule for the coming week and I got nervous.  Lots of very short runs but I thought to myself ‘this race is going to be here before I realize’  This week will be all about getting everything together for race day.  Checking off all the things I need to bring to the start.  I am more nervous for the wait at the start village than I am fot the actual race itself.  I know what to expect when I start running, I’ve been training for 16 weeks so that I would be ready for the actual running part.  I have no idea what to expect while waiting around to start.  My bus leaves at 5:45am, I start the race at 10:40am.  Five hours of waiting in anticipation.

As far as health I am just trying to hold on.  Coughed up some blood the other night and am feeling more congested than I have in a while. I’ve also been tired a lot lately. Ugh!  The roller coaster of CF.  One day I’m up the next I’m down.  No rhyme or reason to it.  I’ll be ready for race day though. I have to be.  I will be doubling up on all my treatments this week. The vest two times a day plus the flutter.  I need to get as much of this junk out of my lungs as possible.

So this is it.  The final countdown.  Next Sunday is going to be a very emotional day!

    So psyched! The start village is hell. Eat your breakfast there, take a nap. Light stretching. Meditate??? It is what it is. Can’t wait to cheer you on.
    Go Runner!
