Ready, Set.....

I am sitting on go.

I have done the training (again), I have rested, and now I am ready to run. I still don't know if I have a sub 4 in me but I am going to leave it all out there. I am 23 pounds lighter then Huntsville and 11 pounds lighter then Birmingham. Will that make a difference? I don't know, but it can't hurt.

I did my last 3 mile pace run yesterday. Funny how when I only have to run 3 miles it seems that I couldn't run a step more. Otherwise, it went well and on pace.

Then Amy and I went to the expo yesterday afternoon and picked up our packets. We didn't get to spend a lot of time there but I did get a cool new shirt to wear for race. I know you aren't suppose to do anything new for a race but it has worked for me in the past. Memphis I wore new shoes, tights, shirt, and socks.

I have everything packed.
including a garbage bag. The forcast still had rain in it
We are going out for pasta tonight to get good and carb loaded. Then I hope to get to bed early. 3am is going to come mighty early tomorrow.

Good luck to everyone running tomorrow. I am counting on David getting a PR and pulling me along.
My hubby will be there doing the half. He hasn't been running so it should be interesting. Wonder if I should bump up his life insurance?!?
Tim, Lee and Heather are all super fast and I know they are going to PR. Hope they save some beer for me at the finish line.
Holly is going to do awesome at her first marathon and Amy and Mary Beth at their first half.
Mike and Lana are doing the half as a training run as they prepare to head down to Panama City in 2 weeks.
Lisa is running the half and so is David's daughter, Amy.
Patrick is running too I just don't know which race.
It is going to be a fun time, sub 4 or not!!!
