My family has a pretty bad history of heart disease. My oldest brother died during open heart surgery and my older sister passed away in November from a stroke. This is my first half marathon and my mom is paranoid that something is going to happen to me. I did go to the dr in December for a check up and mentioned to her what I was doing. She did an EKG and said my heart was fine.

Last week when I finished 10 miles I felt so good about things but now I am so nervous.

Thanks for letting me vent a little.
Greetings from another southern Lori ! big deep breath....you will do good, you can do this race even if you might need to walk a little. Sometimes my shins need a good half mile to warm up..maybe try some shin stretches before to warm them up. Al,ost there !

Aww, thanks so much. I have been planning on this day for so long.

My husband is no help. He says what is the worse that can happen??? Because of that response I will not be the only one with sore shins.

Lori it is so very normal to be nervous, this is my 3rd princess and I am so very nervous for the meet up. But I can guarantee you that once you get in your corral all the nerves go away. I remember last year saying to the people I was running with as we were running into MK "this is F@#$ing AWESOME!!!

Howdy from the third southern Lori!

Just remember... we will all be FINE! Way back in high school, my dance team teacher always said, "Can't never could." Only positive thoughts from here on out.

We've. Got. This!!!

Yeah I am a little worried about weather. We are in central IL and fly to Ohare then Orlando. I'm hoping the weather really isn't that bad, they are all over the place, not sure whether it will be a lot or not or when it will actually get here. Can't fly out any earlier for me because I have a test thursday morning :/ fingers crossed its like the usual weather they've been predicting this year, they say it will be bad and its really nothing.
