Counting Down

Only two more days until the Marine Corps Marathon! Taper madness is over. I feel great and I am soo excited. My students are fully expecting to see a gold medal after the race (for some reason they think I'm running in the Olympics). :)

I bought a new pair of my exact same, perfect sneakers this past week, printed my race confirmation and packed my bag. I am ready. And....top it all, I just read there will be a 6:00 am church service for runners before the start of the race. This *could* be fate---I might meet a marine, runner, who attends church. I couldn't ask for anything more than that. My fingers are crossed. :)

Have a great weekend and happy running!

Outstanding AA. The weather cleared just enough to make it a nice run. If memory serves, the medal is gold so the kids will be excited.

HI! I just got your comment on my blog! I wish I would have known you were running and I would have cheered you on. It is a great, flat course. It looks like you did great! Was the wind bad?
