my bib, I've rested (no running since Wednesday), and hydrated, and I'm heading to bed EARLY out of respect for my 4:20am alarm.
We had some excitement today: my husband fell at work and hurt his back - he's FINE but it required a trip to prompt care and some serious pain meds. He'll be home from work for at least a few days. Tonight as I was packing for the race, he looked at me and said, "I think you'll do it. I think you'll finish the whole thing. You're pretty badass, and you'll walk when you need to and take care of yourself, but I believe in you." Is he not the greatest??? I love him so much. He was so supportive through all the training runs last summer, and at my first half. He's been my biggest fan in everything I do, ever since we met.
I don't know what will transpire tomorrow. I'll be careful not to injure myself. But I will give it ALL I'VE GOT. I will leave it all on the road. This is going to be a far different run from the Inaugural Ventura Marathon, that's for sure!!
Whatever happens, shit-show or no... I'll keep you posted.
Wish me luck.
