To Finish and Not Die

Well it is only a few more days until the Tely10.  I would be lying to you if I said I was not nervous or a little worried.  If I am being honest I am not as prepared as I would like to be.  With the weather lately, I have not been out walking as much as I wanted.  I have been getting up to 8k walks which take me about 90 minutes so I should finish in about 3 hrs.  These 8k are on trails which have various inclines and declines and can be uneven.  On the plus side my thoughts are when I on the road it will be easier as it is on pavement and generally flatter.  I also imagine the adrenaline and the crowds cheering you on help with the pace.

According to the weather it will be approximately 19 degrees by the time I finish so I am glad it won’t be too hot.  Hopefully it is windy and no humidity.

Finally, for anyone who has participated before I need your help.  I have some questions that I am looking to get answered:

  1. What should I eat the night before or that morning?
  2. Is there any preparation that I should do before I head to the race?
  3. Is there anything I should bring with me besides water?

I am as ready as I will ever be for this Sunday.  Wish me luck, hopefully I won’t need it.



What Have I Done?

There is something that I have talked about doing for a while now and I have finally made it official.

I am registered for my first ever Tely10.

To say I was nervous completing the registration was an understatement. Now I just need to put in the work to get ready for it.

Wish me luck.  I am going to need it.
