12 Day Plan* for a half marathon

Happy Friday. With 12 days left until my half marathon, my very kind colleague (Thank you, Dustin) came up with a plan* for me. In case there are any procrastinators out there who may want to take on a half marathon in just twelve days, I thought this may be worth sharing. Here’s my 12 day plan. As Jenny said, “Pray with me Forrest, Pray with me.” I need your prayers. AT LEAST I will have some fun, vibrant, fuchsia and pretty kicks to keep me smiling (I hope).

*By plan, I really mean if you failed to plan and have no idea what to do given that you’re pretty damned. You really should not be doing what I am doing.
