Thursday I went for a run around the neighborhood. The weather has gotten a bit warmer here, which I am not too happy about. When it gets hotter it gets tougher to run.
Friday I went on a short bike ride through the neighborhood and finished up with some crunches and yoga poses.
Saturday morning I finished my last long run before the race. I ran five miles outside with my race pace of run four minutes walk one. It was warm in some spots during the run, but overall it was an OK run.
Monday I got up and had to go for a 40 minute run outside. I kept a good pace and felt great after.

Wednesday I took a short (compared to all my other runs) 30 minute run through the neighborhood following my race pace of r4/w1.
Thursday evening my mom and I headed over to the Disney Health & Fitness Expo to pick up our race packets and check out all of the vendors. I forgot to bring my waiver, which I had printed out a few days earlier, but luckily they had computers set up to print them out so I took advantage of them.
Afterwards we walked across to the actual expo. There were lots of vendors with lots of great running/fitness related gear and products. We grabbed our goodie bags and then went to explore. I got a new headband, some free Luna bar samples, a new Clif Builder's Bar, and two race pace bands. After spending about two hours walking around and checking things out we headed back home.
So those were my last days of training for my first half marathon! I will be back to tomorrow for a quick pre-race post.
