Half Marathon Training: 1 Weeks To Go!

This week was insane for me.  A combination of homework insanity, AP studying and allergies led to a pretty low mileage week.  I’m really nervous  and I cannot believe that race day is so soon.  I feel unprepared but my goal is to finish.  Whether there’s walking involved or not, I will get that medal and wear it proudly.  Here is my training schedule from this past week:  Continue reading
