I was terrified! What should I wear? What should I eat? How early should I get there? What exactly is this "bag check" thing? These were some things running through my head. As you know, I did great. The race was a blast. After just one race, I was hooked. Doing the Baltimore Women's Classic last year was great practice. I felt so comfortable at my first race that I have done so many local races that I have lost count.
It was so nice to figure out what worked for me long before my goal event. I got to the Disney Princess Half still feeling very nervous, but feeling comfortable in the race environment and feeling like all the pre-race stuff was routine for me. I can't wait for Sunday to run in the Baltimore Women's Classic again.
Did you have a practice race? Did it make you feel better about your goal race?
A dream is a wish...
