Is it Friday yet??

Race weekend is fast approaching. 

Disclaimer: I received free entry to the Publix Savannah Women's Half Marathon as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!

I am blown away at how quickly it became spring! 

I have been on the struggle bus the past few weeks recovering from a nasty go round with Bronchitis and Asthma! 

The week before my marathon I was feeling a little under the weather. After marathon weekend I was feeling even more under the weather but still kinda ok. I assumed I was reacting to the changes in the seasons. We were getting all sorts of high pollen alerts. I was signed up for a 50k March 23rd and I showed up planning to crush it but within the first 5 miles I had a massive asthma attack! I couldn't breath and I couldn't speak! SCARY!! Luckily I used my inhaler and  was able to catch my breath. It was a perfect storm. I dropped the race at mile 7 and will get my 50k some other time! At the aid station my coughing non stop began and I coughed non stop for the next several days. On the Monday after the 50k I visited the doctor and was diagnosed with Bronchospasms as a result of my Asthma Exacerbation and Bronchitis. I was given a steroid pack, instructed to use my inhaler ever 4 hours and a cough syrup. I felt so terrible. 

I am still feeling bad. I have a cough that just will not go away! I have been able to run 3 miles on the regular so I hope this weekend I can knock out the 13.1! 

I am sooooo looking forward to this race! Savannah is gorgeous, there are so many amazing things to do and Tess is going with me!

My plan for Friday is to get up and go for my run at 5 like usual. When I get home I will jump in the shower, get ready and leave. Hopefully no later than 7am. We will get into Savannah about noon and head straight to packet pick up! Afterward we will grab some lunch at some cool local hot spot and then tool around town and see some sights, maybe even drive out to Tybee Island. We will then check into our hotel, maybe see some more sights or rest, whatever we feel like and then grab dinner at another local hot spot! Then we will head back to the hotel to get some good sleep!

Saturday I will wake up early and go through my typically race morning routine. I plan to walk to the start line. I looked over the course map and it looks like where I am staying is where most of the parking areas for the race are anyway. Looks to be about a mile walk so that will be my race warm up! 

I am looking forward to meeting up with some other BRP's at the race and then I will likely take it easy for this run so as to not exacerbate my asthma again. I am no longer taking any medication nor do I want to lol!

I plan to take lots of pictures unless is pouring rain. It does look like there is a chance of rain but I am good with that! All those live oaks will shelter me I am sure!!

After the race the plan is shower then PIZZA! 

I can't wait for the weekend to be here already! Is it Friday yet?
