Last Minute Preparations

It's the night before the marathon.  Wow!

This afternoon I went to pick up my race packet.  I got my number, my chip and my pull-over jacket.  It's definitely too warm now to use the pull-over, but everyone who's running this marathon trained through cold weather so I guess we'll all get to proudly wear it in the fall and winter.

I'm laying everything out in preparation for tomorrow morning.  I've pinned my number on my shirt, put the chip on my shoe, filled up water bottles and snapped them on my AmphiPod, filled the pouch on my AmphiPod with GU, set aside a granola bar to eat before the race, put a new shirt, shorts, socks and sneakers in a bag to keep in my car just in case I want to change before I get get the picture.

Tonight for dinner we decided to go to California Pizza Kitchen - we were close to there around dinner time, the kids like it and they have pasta there.  I had a spaghetti with tomato/basil/garlic sauce.  I hope the garlic doesn't upset my stomach tomorrow...

Tonight I will read a bit.  I'm about 2 months behind on Runner's World - I'm still reading the April edition and June just came in the mail today.  I may also re-read my blog to get an appreciation for where I was 18 weeks ago when I started my journey, and what I have been through to get to this moment.

My next post will most likely include my finishing time.  UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!
