I'm obviously excited about the blizzard but it does make training for the New York City half marathon a little tougher. I have my bike trainer in the apartment and will definitely be using it all week but what about running? My hope is to get some miles in on the treadmill if the apartment office is open Tuesday or Wednesday. I will also try to get short runs in on Friday and Saturday before the race on Sunday. I have a feeling I will be just fine but the strongest part of my body will be fine no matter what happens. Mentally I'm prepared for the race and know I will be just fine. I'm not worried about the pain or the cold on Sunday. It took me almost five years to realize this but racing is all mental, how much pain can you take is what racing is all about. In the past the pain won around mile ten, trail running has taught me that I'm so much stronger than I ever thought. The pain will go away, my brain may want me to stop but I know that I can keep going. It is just a matter of telling myself that it's possible. I now believe in myself and I'm given support from so many people that believe in me on a daily basis and that has changed everything!! A blizzard and cold temperatures won't ruin the NYC half marathon for me!!
