Actually I think that's an understatement. I have the half marathon coming up in less than 11 days and I have only run ONCE in the past 10! Not good! I hope I can do it. I am starting to really STRESS about my abilities. I honestly don't know if I can do it. Our last day in Hawaii, I actually had the time to go out and run, but my body just did NOT feel up to it. Probably because I was eating SO much more than I am used to! Or maybe the adjusting to a new time zone. Whatever the reason, I just didn't want to. Even with the beach as a backdrop and the sound of the waves, I was just too tired. And that problem is now only compounded. We traveled ALL night last night and I have had MAYBE three hours of sleep, and that is if I count sleeping off and on in a cramped up airplane. I will have been awake for about 40 hours straight (with the exception of the three) before I can hit the pillow. Just thinking about getting up at 5:30 in the morning is not a HAPPY thought. PANIC! Guess I have to just resolve the fact that I can't do much about it now and so I will just have to give it my best and hope it IS my best! Only time will tell... Total Distance: A BIG FAT ZERO! Maybe all that walking I did on my vacation will count for something!

Don't panic! It will be fine! You'll get right back into it with nothing lost as soon as you can get your sleeping back on track! Seriously, you are a great runner and you'll be able to do this! I'm getting so excited! Did you ever find out if you are registered for sure or not? Are you going with the Young Women tonight?
