I am warning you now this is a long post as well as i will prolly talk about it for days, okay weeks, to come!
so on Saturday night we layed low and as i said before spent a bit of time visiting family. then back to the hotel room to prepare for the big day. I felt like a little kid preparing for my first day of school. I laid out everything in preparation for the early morning. it looks like a lot but everything was needed for the next morning and i didn't realize at the time one more important item. so if you can see into the pile there is an important piece there. it is my pace band.. one for 6:00:00 my stretch goal and one for 6:17:00 the ultimate goal; the one i figured i could do based on previous runs. and on the back of my stretch band was my friends/family pics. those who wished me well and those who i just knew wanted to be at the finish line with me.
i was hardly awake and already getting dressed. the day before i had pick up this really cool pink shirt and on the back it says 'irunlikeagirl'. i loved it. i also bought the beanie!!!! a quick look outside and i saw it wasn't beanie weather at all!!! We drank our coffee and i made my breakfast.. bagel, cream cheese and banana.. now normally i love this breakfast but i usually don't eat until i am up for at least an hour and a pot of coffee later. so i tried to eat it but just couldn't. then it was time for the traditional 'this is what we look like before we head out for a run' photo.
to be continued....
