T Minus 11 Hours - Thank You and Yipee!!!
First of all, thank you for all the well wishes, encouragement, and prayers. Many of you have been in the same spot I'm in right now and you probably know all the thoughts going through the old noggin. So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you!!!
We're up in Grand Rapids. We got in last night, dropped the kids at my parents house and Steve and I went to see Spirit of the Marathon. Afterward, we went out for something to eat - I was starving and had carbo-loading on my mind. So, after downing a whole individual Florentine Pizza and loving every bit of it, we headed back to my parents. The girls were still up at 10:45 pm and really didn't fall asleep until almost midnight.
I went out for three miles this morning. It was really weird how three miles seemed so daunting. Hello - you're running 26.2 miles tomorrow!!!
Picked up the race packet and then Steve and I drove around to check out the route and figure out where the spectator spots are. It looks like it is a nice, scenic route on a lot of tree lined trails. The colors are gorgeous right now so it should be beautiful.
We just got home from going out to dinner. Found a nice pasta dish with shrimp.
I have my stuff all laid out and ready to go. The weather should be just right, 40s to 50s and sunny.
I'm off to bed.
Thank you again!!!
