It’s Official

Pre-race jitters have hit me already.  Four days to go, and I’m getting stomach cramps due to nervousness.  Normally I don’t start to panic until the night before races, but I think the fact that the race is in unfamiliar territory is getting me worried.  Not to mention the added stress of wanting to qualify for Boston, because if I don’t qualify this time I’ll have to wait another 6 months for another attempt.  The way I see it is if I qualify in San Diego, I’ll get to run Boston next year.  However, if I wait until December to qualify, I may not get a shot at Boston until 2012 because of how fast registration has been filling up before December.  To be perfectly honest, I think this is going to be a slow race because of the hilly course; and I am not confident that I’ll be able to run the time I want, even though I think I’m in better shape now than I was 6 months ago.

Just take a look at the elevation chart, and tell me why I shouldn’t worry…

    Looks like it won't be next year 😦 Hopefully, 2012. Either that or I'll have to wait until I turn 40, at which point the time limited increases by another 15 minutes πŸ˜€
