After months of training and preparation tomorrow is the big day. I'm ready for the New Jersey Half Marathon. I wanted to run the New Jersey half because it was sponsored by Novo Nordisk and today at the race expo I know why I wanted to be here. The expo seemed more like a diabetes expo than a race expo and I loved every second of it. From seeing diabetes banners and diabetes stats every few feet on the expo floor if a person without diabetes was walking the around the expo the would definitely have a much better understanding of diabetes when they left. Personally the highlight of the expo was seeing Team Novo Nordisk member Stephen England speak about his personal story as a diabetic and as a runner.
Tomorrow my plan is to try and run a 1:45 half marathon, it's possible but a tough few days may keep that from happening. For the past few days I have had a nagging cough and a lot of mucus. I felt ok on my training run this afternoon and my blood sugars have been great. I will be working my butt off to see 1:45 at the finish, the weather conditions will also be in my favor with good temperatures and very little wind it is a great day for a run.
I will be posting pictures to Facebook and Twitter tomorrow before and after the race. I will not be writing tomorrow but a race report will be up on Monday night, be ready to read about my half marathon that ended with a pr!!!
