I only have a few weeks left before my race. I am getting increasingly nervous. Before I ran my second race I figured I wouldn't be nervous because I already knew what to expect. Every race is different though and in this race in particular, it will be the first one while I am dealing with diabetes. I am still confident that I will complete this race and do it well, but I can't help but look at this 26.2 miles and think about how long it truly is. I just need to breathe and concentrate on one mile at a time!

    Kris Fergus is training to run Red White and Blue 26.2 in Findlay, Ohio on October 7th, 2012. Though this is not her first marathon, it is the first race in which she will run after being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Training began on Monday, June 18th, and Kris will be keeping a blog to bring you with her on her journey and she will be raising money for Lakewood Hospital during the process.
