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!
