Pre-Half Thoughts

The big 13.1 is only a small number of hours away. I’m not scared for the race, or for the fatigue I will experience towards the end of the race. I am afraid to believe that the end of this season is finally here. I am afraid of waking up next Tuesday morning, realizing I won’t have a 3 mile run to do at 6:00 p.m. I am afraid that when I take off for that gun, there will only be a little over 2 hours of the season left for me and Shelli. Once we cross that finish line together, it’s over. All the build up leading up to this race, will soon vanish. And there goes my blogging days. And there goes my heart as well. The ending of this RTS season will be devastating for me. I feel like I don’t recover as quickly as others do when something seasonal ends. I always tend to hold on to it just a little bit longer; hoping to find that it’s not really over. But since I know it will be over soon, I just want to say thank you for allowing me to express how this season of RTS has went for me. You all who have followed my journey, have been the greatest support. I know in the end that RTS is where I belong. It has the greatest runners and the best supporters. The next time you hear from me, I will have ran my 4th half marathon with Run the Streets! Woohoo!! (By the way, this isn’t the last of me! What kind of blogger would I be if I didn’t update you after the half marathon??) – Sevyn
