Marathon Anticipation

I'm getting slightly more nervous as Monday approaches. I keep trying to remind myself that I ran 20 miles when I hadn't been following the training like I should... and I survived. What's 6 more? I mean, really? ...

Because I follow a walk / run thing, I think I'll be able to make it just fine. That is, I'm planning on making it. The only other alternative is to drop out and I'm not so cool with that idea.

Just for fun, there's a tracking thing here that you can use to follow any runner and get updates on their race. I just filled one out so I can follow Bethany - that way I'll know just how far ahead of me she is.

Good luck, Eden!!! You'll do a FABULOUS job! And if you're hungry afterward, feel free to stop at Arby's and eat some yummy greasy food...just like we did that ONE time I went running with you years ago! :)

Wait, why didn't I catch that you were running a marathon in, like, three days? I mean, I remember you saying you were going to run one, but so soon? Shouldn't it take like ten years to train for one? Shows how much I know.

I also know this: You will do fabulously. Of course you will. And when you're done, you'll have run a marathon! I swoon with envy.

Good luck! This is a goal I keep saying I probably want to do and then never come through on. And you're actually going for it. You'll do great!
