Just a quick note. the anticipation is killing me. I feel like a kid who is getting marched down to the principals office. I am dreading going to bed simply because I know it will be show time when I wake up. Fear of the unknown. The silly part is that I have already done the distance. I have put my time in, done my long runs and felt strong with a good recovery at the end. so whats the deal?
just pre-race nerves.
I trust my training and have confidence that I have left it all on the trail, held nothing back when prepping for this. I am here to have a great run and to add another shirt and medal to my growing collection. :)
on a lighter note, had a great time with the kids. i randomly went over to tickle my pre-occupied teenager and she looked up at me over her book and playfully said - "dad, you are invading MY special bubble" Special Bubble???? " I got your special bubble RIGHT HERE" and threw a pillow at her. My 10 yr old jumped in and within a few seconds it erupted into a full scale battle similar to when Anakin and Obi-Wan took on Darth Maul. I hate to say it but a 14 and 10 yr old almost bested me, but youth and vigor will never defeat age and treachery. I took out the oldest by tackling her on the bed and tickling her until she cried uncle. after that the 10 yr old was easy prey HEHEHEHE. Got my cardio in, carbo loaded, ready to rock!
see you at the finish line!
