Only A Week Left!!!
I had a pretty good week! I ran two other times with success; one 7km and one 12km. I think after running these two races, it really convinced me that I could run the Montreal half-marathon. It's crazy to look back at my whole journey and the obstacles I had to go through. All I can say is I'm very proud of myself and it's a good thing that I never gave up. Now, I can see that all my efforts were worth it. For example, I ran my 12km at a 5:20 pace. It went very smoothly and at the end, I wasn't even that tired. I think I would be able to run at a 5:40 pace for my half-marathon which would also make me reach my goal of running under 2 hours! Also, the fundraising has been going very well. I thought I would raise about 500$ but I'm already at 595$ and I know there are other donations that I just haven't recieved yet. Plus, I will me running other races until March so I know that I can raise a lot more. For this last week before the race, I will take it very slowly and try not to think too much about it. But, I have to admit, I really am excited to stand on that starting line on Sunday morning.
