I just looked over at my countdown tracker on the blog. I'm less than 10 days away from starting my first marathon....WOW!!!!!!

One more week left!! How excited are you?! I'm excited!! I wish I was running this with you! I really want to do another one already. I can't seem to stop thinking about it. I have barely run in the last few weeks, and they each feel a little forced and painful, but I can't wait to start training for something again. I think I'm going to stick with Half Marathons this fall - try to get my time under 2:00. I'm just going to live vicariously through everyone else that gets to run fulls. YAY!! :) Hope the taper isn't messing with you too bad. This next week will be tough, but you're ready!

This is an exciting time leading up to the marathon. Enjoy it, but again, go easy in your remaining runs. Save it for the main event.

I got the magnet today! Thanks so much! It's awesome! It will be proudly displayed next to my Sparty magnet. Hehe - just kidding, I'm such a pathetic alumni, I don't even have ANY MSU stuff on any of our vehicles.

Thanks again, I appreciate the gift Mike!

Sara - I believe I will also be focusing on 1/2 marathons after this (at least for the rest of this year). And although 2:16 is my PR for the half up until now, I believe that sub-2 hours is in reach based on my current marathon training.

Rick - No Spartan pride??? The UofM club of DC was able to get University of Michigan Alumni - "M! Go Blue" - license plates for the state of Maryland. So both my car and my wife's car have these license plates. And I'm hoping to add a 26.2 magnet on the back in about 8 days :-)

I'm jealous of your UM license plates - I want one!! The only college plate available here is UCLA :-(
