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!
