It's Marathon Weekend! If all goes as planned, I'll officially be a marathoner 48 hours from now. I hope to cross the finish line right around 10:45 on Sunday morning. Look at your clocks and think of me!
I'm heading off to the marathon expo with Mary the Bear in tow.
Mary the Bear comes from the brilliant mind of Little Miss Runshine, a running blogger that I stumbled across a few months ago. She is being shipped off to first-time marathoners as a good luck charm, in exchange for pictures of Mary out and about at the Marathon festivities and a write-up of the race in Mary's Running Passport. How cool is that?
Did you watch the Royal Wedding? I really had no interest, but when I went downstairs at 5:30 this morning (couldn't sleep anymore because of the nerves!) it was on pretty much every channel. I ended up watching it, and it was actually somewhat neat to see. The costumes and hats were just amazing. I felt like I was watching a Disney movie.
I have FOUR days off! Aunt and Grandma are coming to town this evening so that they can watch me run the race on Sunday. So excited to see them!
I'm feeling rather shallow today, thanks to my brain being preoccupied with running-related things. Nota put the mindset into words better than I possibly could at this point! Everything is pretty much mush. I would be useless at work, anyway :)
Have a great weekend!
