Guess what?! I’m running the Giants Half Marathon tomorrow! Tonight, I’m mentally preparing myself and getting everything together, so I’m all packed and ready to go tomorrow morning. I feel really good about the race. I’ve been running consistently for the past month or so, waking up at 4:30am a few times a week to squeeze in my runs before work, and doing my long runs on the weekends.
I. Am. Ready.
It’s also a course I’m familiar with, although I’ve never actually run this race before. We start off at 2nd and King St (right by AT&T Park), mosey along the Embarcadero, through Marina Boulevard, almost to the Golden Gate Bridge, and then back again to finish on the baseball field of AT&T Park. How cool is that?
It’s relatively flat, and weather conditions are looking perfect: overcast with mid-50s. Good ol’ SF weather.

- Outfit all laid out for tomorrow? Check
- Bagel and banana ready for tomorrow’s breakfast? Check
I’ve gone over the course and decided that once I hit Brannan St tomorrow, it’s gonna be an all out SPRINT! Eek, starting to feel the butterflies. I’m heading to bed now. Wish me luck!
