1 more day..

hooooly crap……it’s almost that time…MARATHON TIME!!!!  this time tomorrow I’ll be drinking a bloody mary at the local and eating a soft pretzel with hot mustard sauce….as a reward for having run 42 frickin kilometers….ack….i can do it!! I was BORN ready…..doesn’t mean I’m not a little scared….that’s a long way to run…today is the fun part…CARB LOADING!!! yay!!! loves it!! at the end of the day, the marathon distance is just something I have to start doing if I plan on making it to ironman canada, which i do…..so I have to look at this as training, not the end result…somehow that makes me feel better…not sure why…i guess i need to justify why I’m doing this when I hate running so much….i’m a triathlete, not a runner….that makes it ok….picking up marissa in a little bit, we’re doing a nice lil 10k, just to work out the kinks….i know that apparently you’re not supposed to run right before a race but my body responds better to constant abuse…rest, not so much…lol…or at least thats what I tell myself…..wish me luck!!!! marathon countdown is ON!
