Day Before Prep

Happy Saturday all! I had a very busy day yesterday, which meant no time to post. But it was probably good in a way because I didn’t have time to stress about the marathon either. My brain was occupied on work, so the marathon anxiety took a little break.

Well it’s Saturday a.m. and I am up trying to get things together and finish a few household tasks before we leave today around 12:30 – 1:00 p.m. I started gathering “the troops” last night – meaning everything I was going to need for Sunday.

I am by no means done – my clothes are a completely different pile. These are just the accessories including Body Glide, hair ties, two Gu packets, my allergy medicine, Nasonex, two inhalers (in case the one runs out – it’s low), deodorant, directions and a pace chart bracelet. My Garmin is charging.

For dinner last night I had about 2 1/2 slices of pizza and then some strawberries and blueberries for dessert. And my stomach is way off today already. I’m hoping it will be all better by tomorrow morning.

That’s all for today peeps – I want to get a bunch of stuff done and frankly, I’m too nervous to keep writing the word marathon anymore. Race starts at 8 a.m. and I’m hoping we’ll be home by 3-4:00 tomorrow. I’ll update you then!!

Have a great weekend all!
