Three Days and Counting

So Run to Victory is in three days. My half marathon for the year. And as usual, I feel vulnerable to failure.

And what is failure for me?

I have no idea.

Which makes me frustrated that I ruminate over this.

I have a twitter friend who is running a marathon on Sunday. He says he has no goal time, just for fun.

First, I don't believe him. :)

Second, I want to feel the same way but I don't. I mean, I'm not _that_ stressed about it, but I am stressed about it.

Run for fun is not in my book because of that.

I have a goal. The goal is not to do worse than my last half. Notice I don't say 'do better than last half'. I mean NOT WORSE. And even more so, my goal is to not do worse than my first half!!

My first half? Why have I brought up the past?

I read a couple of blurbs on this particular route. And what I read is "challenging course", "hilly course". That just sends bad butterflies into my tummy when I read that.

We shall see. I never know how I'll react on race day. I just hope to surprise myself. But it seems that I can't get away from fretting about it beforehand.
