1 more sleep!

Thank you so much for all of your awesome support. I will definitely remember your encouraging words tomorrow. It’s a great feeling knowing that you’re all out there rooting for me and I truly appreciate it.

We hit the expo this morning and everything is ready to go.

They stamped the back of my baggage tag to indicate that I had paid for bag check. Take a look at this stamp.

Somebody has an interesting sense of humour. I hope it’s not an omen!

All that’s left to do now is eat, relax and eat some more. Go figure, I have zero appetite today. Must be nerves. Fortunately, hubs is following me around hounding reminding me to eat and drink constantly.

There’s no question that I’m nervous, but I’m also very excited. Tomorrow is the victory lap after several months of training. It’s still a long way to the finish line, but I’m ready to enjoy it. 26.2 miles of celebration.

This is it. Hopefully I’ll be posting some good news around this time tomorrow.

  7. I ALWAYS have huge nerve/appetite issues before marathons. It's ridiculous. I'm usually able to force food down the day before, but come the morning of the race, breakfast is basically impossible for me to choke down.I hope the race went well!! I'm anxiously awaiting your victory lap report 🙂
