I'm nervous about my 11-mile run scheduled for Sunday morning. No reason to think that I can't complete it. I ran 10 miles last week just fine; got in two runs during the week, including a four-point-something run on Friday that went very well; I've been doing well in terms of nutrition and carbo-loading (though I need to do more research on carbo-loading).

I guess it's the distance that's frightening me. I've done 11 miles before, but I think I've only done 11 miles or more either two or three times. Yes, it's all part of my evolution as a runner, running these long distances but I'm nervous/anxious/worried nonetheless.

I will do something that I've not done before, and that's to take my iPod out to the Lopers. I haven't used it once, not even during my 10-miler last week.

Anyway, just had to get that off my chest since I've been thinking about it all day.

enjoy your run, LB. i took a week off, but my running will resume tomorrow. i am thinking maybe the chicago marathon in 2010?! i am not an iPod runner. just my watch, clothes, hat and sneakers.

Thanks ladies. I'm almost to the group meeting place, trying to calm down. Sad thing is, is that this isn't even half of a marathon : (

It'll be good though. I'm ready.

TG, the Chicago Marathon would be great! Perhaps you'll add a fuel belt to your running attire at some point.
