In 2 days I will be done running the marathon!! So right now I am doing all my final preparations. I have been eating healthy and doing a bit of early carb loading. I'm drinking lots of water and gatorade to get this body all hydrated.
I printed out the course map and figured out when I'm going to take my GU's and what times I need to hit each point of the race to make my goal.
I have my outfit all picked out and washed. And I got these awesome new shoes from my friend for my birthday. I have done 9 miles in them to break them in this week and they are going to help me cruise to the finish line.
I am very calm right now and excited for race day. I really want to try to enjoy this race and remember that I LOVE RUNNING!!! Running has given me so much over the past few years and I want to focus on those things while I run. I have created amazing friendships. I am healthier and faster than I have been since high school. I weigh less than I did on my wedding day. I have the most supportive and amazing family cheering me on every day and helping me make my goals. I can't wait to see the smile on Todd's face when I cross the finish line!! (can someone remind me of this at mile 23?)
