HELP!! Pre-Race Munchies Meltdown!

Saturday, July 14, 2012

Moment of truth:

My eating yesterday & today has been off the charts!!

What is it about running a marathon that drives me to a Munchies binge?? LOL Of course, I'm sure my body can use the extra calories starting in about 8 hours. But all the nervous excitement is just too much for me!!!!


Not just about running, but about meeting other Spark Friends who'll be there! I've ALWAYS wanted to connect with other runners, more than just through Internet. But when I lived in the States before, I never knew any other dedicated runners who did events. In Germany, I was all alone for the most part too... So excited to meet other CrAzY RUNNING NUTS!!

I have no expectations about this race. The course is hilly, the atmosphere fun & non-competitive. I'm just looking to run at a comfortable pace & have a blast with new running friends!!

Bring it on, Make It By Midnight Marathon!!!

    Darcy, I LOVE LOVE meeting up with Spark and FB running buds and alot of the ones I love are the ones you will be meeting today!!!!! I have to laugh. When I first met Becki at Space Coast last year all I could say was...geez, you are short! I am 5'4" and I was looking down at Becki. Oh and Becki has a cute southern drawl. Suezette is a dynamo and Wendy is AWESOME!!!!!!!! SO jealous!

    Have a great time and throw caution to the wind and just eat!
