After much strategizing and strategery I think I’ve come up with the marathon plan. I’m gonna run.
Just kidding. There’s more.
P-Funk and I have been training together and she really helped me get through some of those tough long ones, so it only makes sense that we run together. I have grown quite accustom to her breathing pattern and she has grown accustom to my terrible jokes. We decided to start with a pacer and take it slow at the front end. Should we need to split up we will. For some reason, I don’t see this happening, but marathons are a different animal.
Tonight is the BRA pasta dinner #1. Redhead will be joining, which is flippin sweet as will fellow blogger Sam from Operation Jack. Running friends + carbs = good time. Saturday I plan on heading to the expo and then another meal with the BRA. And then Sunday is GO TIME!
I know I am getting very anxious because the night before last I had a dream that I was a waitress. And I was late for my track meet. I was waiting on Prince and his baby to finish so I could get going. I was panicked because I had forgotten my clothing. I had no running shoes and clothes. I had to rush to the track meet in loafers. That’s when I woke up.
Only 2 more sleeps to go and hopefully on Sunday morning, I won’t forget my running shoes.
I don't know if I'll get a chance to say this before the big day, but Good Luck, and Have a Great Time. You are soooo ready…
Good luck on your marathon!!! You will do great…I have a good feeling about this one:) Have fun with your friends and remember to take lots of pictures!! Just stay positive and keep the feet moving!!
I'm so glad you and P are going to start off together, I think this will help you both get started in the right frame of mind! You are going to do so great, promise me you won't doubt yourself for one second because you trained so awesome Boo, you finished so many runs better than expected, you trained hard and smart and it's all going to come together on Sunday and you will get the Marathon you've trained over a frigging year for! When the going gets rough just remember how great you felt both 22 milers, channel that feeling and go with it! I will be at the Finish line cheering my heart out for you and I can't wait to say "I told you so!" when you totally blow your expectations out of the water! YOU'VE GOT THIS!!!!!!! Kill Bill style. 🙂
See you tonight! Love you!

Good luck tis weekend! You've trainined hard and it's time for your victory lap. Say hi to Sam for me. He and I know each other….
sounds like a very solid plan!! Enjoy tonight and do what you can to relax tomorrow
Ok, the first time I read about your dream, I read that you were a 'walrus' and coulnd't find your shoes! At least you weren't a walrus!
Have a great race, you're going to destroy it!!
Good luck! And sleep in your running shoes….you know just in case. LOL
What? You don't have your clothes laid out yet – what is wrong with you…
Don't forget to tie your shoes, and you'll be fine. Have a good run. Cheers!
Good luck, and hope the force is with you!
I've run my marathons with my running partner and it's great having someone to encourage you on the way. Enjoy!
Yeah, anytime I have the waitress dream I'm in trouble. You'll be fine on Sunday, Prince will be nowhere around that area!
That's a great dream!! I always have strange dreams like that before something that's a big deal.
Good luck this weekend!! I'll think speedy thoughts and I can't wait to read the recap!
You'll do great… just breathe!
You're going to kick a$$ out there!!! Breathe and enjoy the day 🙂 Best of luck! Enjoy the good company tonight.
You're going to run an awesome race, I can feel it!! Have a blast and run your heart out!!!

good luck tomorrow!! i know you will do great 🙂 glad you've got the plan (and back-up) all figured out. i hope your waitressing shift doesn't go too late tonight 😉
If my knees weren't crap I would consider training for one again just for the copious amounts of pasta. Ah ha ha. Best of luck lady!!
