So…seven more sleeps until the big race day and this sums up how I’m feeling:

Just kidding! I’m not scared. Nervous, yes. Scared no. To be honest, it all kind of feels a bit surreal right now and I can’t believe that the moment I have been dreaming about is only a week away. It’s also surprising because I don’t really have a lot to say. However, I have been thinking about all of the well wishes I’ve been receiving thus far, which I hold oh so close to my heart. All of the words of encouragement and kindness are the things I think about when the struggle is real during my runs. As I think about these kind acts, I also thought it would be awesome for people to participate in my race from virtually anywhere.

I’ve been thinking about this for about the last week or so, and I would love it if everyone could send their cheers for me my way by using the hashtag ‘runalexrun’ (#runalexrun) on Facebook, Instagram (@sneakerdrive), and Twitter (@sneakerdrive) either before or on Saturday August 23rd. I know this seems selfish, but I truly mean it when I say that I cherish all of your encouragement when I’m on the road. While your cheers will mean the world to me, I also know that after shedding blood, sweat, and tears during my training, I’VE GOT THIS.

Thank you and much love!

Yours swiftly,
