It’s almost here! My day to run 6.2 miles (10K) with thousands of people around the world! I still haven’t been able to do a full six yet, but today I ran about 5 miles (with a liiiiiittle bit of walking at the end, just to make sure i wasn’t overexerting) so I think I can do it. Now it’s taper time. I plan on running a mile or two on Friday. My main focus on Saturday will be to drink lots and lots of water. Sunday is the day where I prove to myself and to the course on Randall’s Island that I can run six miles.
Now for those of you in the City, here’s some info if you feel like going to the race and cheering me and the other runners on:
