Half-marathon training
Week fourteen, day one

For the first time in 14 weeks, I set my alarm and woke up in plenty of time to go run before work! Yay me!

Only one problem – it was freaking COLD yesterday morning! Not only was it in the 40s outside, it was about 62 degrees in the bedroom. There was no way I was getting out of that warm bed before I had to, so I did my 2 miles at the gym after work instead. Adaptability!

There is so much we can’t control in life. Just for this race – I can’t control the weather, the crowds, how my knees feel, whether I have a headache, whether my shoes come untied…so you just do the best you can and adapt to the situation you’re presented. After all, the one thing I do have 100% control over is my mental attitude!
