In Which Reality Sets In

You know, right into the pit of my stomach.

After signing up to run this, doing my version of training, and finding just the right pink tank, the reality of my whim is finally here. Gulp.

I am currently experiencing alternating moments of sky-high excitement and race to the potty anxiety.

Mostly goosebumps. And butterflies.

In between these moments, I am scurrying around doing laundry, making lists, and piling clothes on the bed to be packed. Oh. And blogging. Whoops!

  4. You'll do great! I did my half this past weekend and had convinced myself that it was just a long run. Really, unless you might win, thats all it is. The only differenc is that other people are taking care of your water for you. It'll be cake.

    And like 82 year old Karl that walked the first 9 miles next to me said (thats how slow I run) "just keep putting one foot in front of the other. We'll get there"

  6. Of course, blogging! Best of luck in the race and I hope my fellow Washingtonians are nice to you during your stay (hmmm...that's a very optimistic thought at least). Enjoy your stay, though!
