Two days to go.

Posted by: turbomammoth In: Uncategorized


137,8 pounds this morning. The fact that I ate 2 slices of bread with peanut butter last night at 9PM probably did not help. If I eat after 8PM, the scale never likes it. But I was super hungry and I prefered giving in something healthy that would actually really filled me up instead of junk crap.

I ran my last training run this morning. The last one of a long, 18 weeks journey that began when there was still tons of snow around. I ran this 6k pushing me a bit, still tired. I felt hard. But I wanted it to feel hard. I wanted that on Saturday morning, everything will looks easier.

They officially closed the susbcriptions for the event yesterday. 2100 runners in! They were expecting 1500 at the beginning. It is the first 1/2 marathon run in 25 years in the town and people got really excited about it I think. Plus it was a perfect schedule, not being in the same period as the marathon-1/2 marathon of Québec City (August) and Montréal (September). However, a lot of the route is on some bike paths and probably won’t be that large for this amount of runners… The good thing is that the half marathon runners are only entering the trail after 1-2 kilometers, so most of the runners will get the time to scatter along the road.

Weather forecast for the big day so far is sunny with chances of rain with a peak of 27 Celsius degrees (31 with humidity). I’m going to pick my runner kit tomorrow so I won’t have to wait in line on saturday morning : less stress is best!

OMG OMG, I can’t beleive I’m actually doing this!!

I love these emotional moments before the game starts and now I am addicted to your day to day posts about the half-marathon run. Forget about the result and and the other runners, and on the day of competition just enjoy every single step you take to the finish line. Logically I should say good luck, but I beleive you don’t need luck to enjoy running and that is really important :)
