There are a lot of thoughts that go through your head during a half marathon. Some of them are positive, some are negative, and some are just funny. You think different things throughout, everything from “It’s hard to drink water and run” to “I have to go to the bathroom.” As you get closer to being done. The thoughts focus on finishing, and you are happy when you are done.
- Your alarm goes off at an ungodly hour and you realize, “Holy crap, it’s here! It’s race day!”
- And that’s just the first of the many thoughts I had when I toed the line at my very first race, the NYCRUNS Queens Half Marathon, just a few short weeks ago.
- I finished with a glowing sense of accomplishment to match my morning enthusiasm, but during the race.
“”Seriously, where can I get pizza after this?””
