Last one before Saturday!

I can't believe that it's almost here!  Every time I check the weather though, I'm disappointed because it's going to be about 86 degrees.  Just like last year.  It got really hot and hard during the last 6 miles and I'm sure it will be about the same this year!  Oh well.  At least it will be a good comparison for the two years.  I had a really bad day yesterday and wasn't excited at all and my stomach was aching again with nerves.  I didn't get any sleep the night before either and I'm sure that didn't help.  But while running today, I could just see us finishing.  I could see the finish line and our families there and it was a great scene!  It got me really excited and it's going to be a great run no matter what my time is or what happens.  I did my 3 miles today with the 3 minutes towards the end almost in a sprint to get ready for carbo loading.  Yes, that starts today too.  It's gonna be great!  
My friend Julie brought over a marathon survival kit.  She is so sweet and it was very thoughtful of her.  She's got all the essentials packed in there, including the victory chocolate!  I will admit that I didn't think that chocolate would make it to the end, but it's still here, calling my name and I will save it for the finish line!  Thanks, Julie!

I just came across your blog and wanted to wish you good luck!! I just ran Salt Lake and it was a tough race for me. I think you have visited our blog Marathon Mommies before and we would love to have you join us. Let me know if you are interested. I also posted about the song Defying Gravity! It is my favorite running song right now.

Have a great race tomorrow!! I will check back.
