Here we, here we go!

It's almost 9pm and I think I'm about ready to get in bed.  My stuff is piled up, just have to lay it out for the morning.  Hopefully sleep will come quickly.  Which I think it will since the kids woke up early this morning and I spent a total of 4 hours birthday party-ing for my oldest daughter.  Yeah, not necessarily the BEST agenda for Marathon Eve, but I'm a mom---it's what I do.  I wasn't on my feet too much though, so that's good.

I'm tempted to check out pace bands and analyze my long runs.

But I know what I can do.  I know what is running smart for me and I'm just going to do it.  It's not just about the time over my head as a cross the finish, it's about the experience of my first marathon.  It will only happen once.

Live tracking is available here: http://liveraceresults.com/liverc2/default2.aspx and my bib # is 319.

Trust me, you're not going to be super impressed with my pace, but I just hope I hit every mark and RUN across that finish line.

I have a fresh playlist for when I need to change it up and I found out my cousin and her family are going to try come support on the course because they don't live too far away.  And my great husband and two sisters will be at the finish with my kids.

I'm so excited! Nervous, but only because I'm ready to cross the start line.

Let's do this thing.
