That song by Augustanna is stuck in my head, but I’m definitely not moving here.
Today I’m up in Maine visiting my family and it’s the day before the race. It has been cold, windy and rainy, the exact antithesis of what I hope race day weather will be like in Boston on the big day. (Forecasters are still predicting clear and 61 degrees for a high, so I’m crossing my fingers and praying!!)
After breakfast we’re heading down to Boston to hit the expo so I can get my race number, etc (um very important!) and then shop ’til I drop on all-things-Boston Marathon souvenirs.
To say that I’m excited for this very big day ahead is such an understatement. I just cannot WAIT!
And, as any little bits of nerves try to creep in (“hope my foot will feel all right,” “what will I do if it rains?” etc.), I dismiss them all away in favor of looking forward to adventure, whatever obstacles surface along the 26.2-mile route.
That’s marathoning, after all.
So, as I depart from Maine, I’m hopeful I’ll be able to blog after the race tomorrow, but we’ll see. Still have to encounter where we’re staying and the Internet situation there.
If not, can’t WAIT to provide an update. ONE DAY AWAY!!!! 🙂
