Somedays you have it and somedays you don't. On Saturday I didn't have it, yes I finished in the top 50 but nothing felt right and my blood sugar was out of range for most of the morning. It is no secret that I'm a wimp when it comes to racing in the cold. It takes me a little bit longer to stretch and get warmed up on cold days. Saturday I was running a little late and didn't allow myself ample time to get warm. That played a big factor in my blood sugar being out of range as well as my "poor" result. The good news is that I have just 13 days until the NYC half marathon, I can put this race behind me and focus on a PR. The bad news is I only have 13 days to figure out what happened to my blood sugar. I believe I know what caused my blood sugar to go out of range but I have just under two weeks to train when it comes to my blood sugars.
I was lucky enough to be chosen in the NYC Half Marathon lottery, tomorrow I will be doing my best to check my email every five minutes to see if I gained entry into the 2016 NYC Marathon via the lottery!! I have a busy day ahead of me tomorrow which will keep me away from my email which could be a good thing. Last year as I checked my email to see if I gained entry to the marathon I was also on twitter reading tweet after tweet from people that had gained entry. The NYC Marathon is like no other race, best of luck to everyone that is entered in the lottery. I hope to see you at the start of the marathon on November 6th!!
