I just did my last run pre-Pittsburgh half-marathon run, a short two miles without my Garmin (which makes me feel naked). This is my second half marathon and first big out-of-town race. I’m a little nervous; I know that I can run the distance and the pace that I want (sub 8:50-min miles), but so much will depend on the weather, how I feel, etc.
When I get tired, I have two tactics:
1. Listen to Eminem’s “Till I Collapse”
2. Remember how much Steve has raised for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (which I hope keeps rising until Sunday)!
