Final Prep Week for the Austin Half Marathon

I’m in the final days of training for the half marathon on Sunday. Is it just me, or have the last 8 weeks gone by really fast? Whew.

It’s been a good training time with some lessons learned. One of those lessons being – after your third baby, your badder just ain’t what it use to be. TMI? Perhaps. But consider it a warning ladies…

Another good lesson learned – I am insane. Granted I knew that already, it’s just now I get to prove it to all my family and friends. Again.

But perhaps the most important lesson {re}learned – My husband rocks. He’s been so good about dealing with the crazy-Sarah that comes out during training {let’s just say I can go a little overboard sometimes} and has rallied around me yet again to see me through to the end.

While so many people are racing this year to either support a great cause or to prove to themselves that they can run such a race, I’ll be honest and say, at this point I’m just really looking forward to a post race P.Terry burger and shake.

If by insane you mean awesome then yes! Hope this week goes smoothly and am excited about he burger and shake for you!

Good luck! I ran the Austin Half 2 years ago! Loved it (even the hills!). Enjoy the burger and shake afterwards. ๐Ÿ™‚

Good luck, Sarah!!! My brother and his fiancee are flying from MN to TX to run the half this weekend too ๐Ÿ™‚ I would TOTALLY be looking forward to the burger and shake!!!

You go, girl!! That is an amazing accomplishment you will have after baby #3!! I am about to have #3 here any day now, and hope to get back into running again after recovery!! Good luck!!

Oh my goodness, already? Didn’t you just have a baby? Lol! Has it been that long ago? Or not, and that’s why you’re so crazy. Well, either way, I’m praying for you and wishing you the best of luck. Don’t forget to share all the details afterward, even about the tasty burger. I remember totally pigging out after my half marathon. ๐Ÿ™‚ And I’m starting to strongly consider signing up for another one…even though I swore I wouldn’t do another one.


I’m so amazed that you are running again just after having a baby! I’m so impressed, haha! Good luck, lady!
