All Packed And Ready To Go!

I have packed up my duffel - with likely a bit too much and also likely something missing (I almost ALWAYS forget something when I go out of town!).

The plan is to head out as early as we can tomorrow and drive up to our friend's place in Wayne, NJ. Sherry and the kids will stay there on Saturday while I take a bus into the city. Once I'm in the city I will drop my bag off at my friend's apartment and then hit the Expo to get my bib and timing chip!!!

I'll have an hour or so to hang out before the Team Run To Remember carbo-loading fest at Carmine's.

Then back to my friend's place to get my stuff ready for the morning and to crash.

I don't know if I'll be able to post a blog update before the marathon...I'll try to post a quick one after the marathon with my time and then hopefully by Monday night with a full race report.

Now it's time to hit the sack!

TK - I did not get a chance to see your comment until AFTER the race...otherwise I may have run a bit faster just to see you ;-)

As I went through Queens I was looking for your pigtails, but I couldn't find them. Due to the fact that I was in the 10:20 wave - and corral G - I didn't get to mile 14 until closer to 1pm.

Although I did not see you on the course, I knew you were out there cheering for me and that definitely helped get me through Queens and onto your bridge!
