Wait – what have I gotten myself into?

Wait – what have I gotten myself into?

So it turns out that in 24 hours, I will be coming up on two hours into my marathon. Which means that tomorrow I am running a marathon.

I am a bit scared. Because 26.2 miles is a long ways – did you know that?

I mean, what was I thinking?


I think I’ll be fine, right? I trained. I did a nice 3.3 mile run yesterday in Milwaukee – and it was good. We went on a brewery tour (I am having a good time, and have the best hosts ever) and then hung out & had pizza.

I slept really well for the first time in weeks on Thursday night, although last night I was not as fortunate. I am hoping to get some sleep tonight – we’ll see how that goes.

Today, all I am doing (I think) is hitting the expo. And relaxing. And trying not to panic.

Good luck to all those other marathoners this weekend! Kristen & Emily in Portland, Aron & Tara at Cowtown, POM here in Milwaukee with me. And anyone else I can’t remember.

I hope I don’t die.

    I’ve been so distracted w/other stuff, but am starting to get that pit-feeling in my stomach. Trying to lay low today but feeling the taper working its magic – I’m ANTSY!

    None of us will die and all live through with great memories and stories to tell.

    Have fun!

  2. Fingers crossed, prayers said, lucky rabbit’s foot* rubbed.
    Expect shortly to read a full report of how you kicked ass 🙂

    *Yes, the foot was still attached to the lucky rabbit.
