Today was the first day of packet pick-up for the Marshall University Half-Marathon on Sunday. I went to Huntington with another Genesis alum Renee who has run (or is it ran) this race a couple of times before but is just as excited as if it were her first! That was cool. She talked about how much fun this race is, the football you’re given as you enter the football field, the hamburger at the end, and the general excitement of the day. When we got there the line had already formed, Robert’s Running was there selling shoes, I have to say it was well organized.
Even while standing in line I was nervous ha! But as we waited we started to see some our fellow Genesis peeps; some from my current training group, some from the past all were excited. Everyone asked how my leg/knee was and if I was running, the running community is a very supportive one. 👍 We got our packets the shirts are nice and we were also given a very cool duffle bag as well! I had also ordered a jacket I picked that up as too. But I won’t put it on or even unzip until after the race…gotta earn it!
So tomorrow I have to take care of some things for my grandmother early, then I’m going to just chill the rest of the day, work on some homework, and get to bed early, don’t forget to set you clocks back 🕑 See ya on race day!
