Oh brother, oh brother, oh brother


I am getting really nervous now. I do not feel ready. My run buddy says it is because of taper that I feel like I haven't been running enough, but

I feel like I haven't been running enough!

Plus, everyone I talk to about San Diego lately says how tough it is. I know it is a tougher course but, I didn't think it was awful. The race reports I read didn't say it was awful. I think this may be because I don't look like a typical marathoner they feel the need to warn me.

Thanks.

Ok, race information. If you want to track my progress (or lack thereof) I am bib # 17122 and the San Diego Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Site will have live tracking. I am flying out tomorrow morning and will be back Sunday night.

I am not going to have my computer this weekend so this is probably it until my race report. I hope you all have a great weekend!

I saw you cross the line! you looked great! I am so proud of you... You are truly a ROCK STAR! How does it feel to be a multi-marathoner? Don't ever forget how it feels, YOU ARE AN ELITE ATHLETE! and my RBR HERO.

Triathlons are nothing now, just a walk in the park. When you gonna do the Ironman? I'll see you in Hawaii!!!

Congrats.

Yay!!! You continue to inspire me. I'm in awe - you've run 26.2 freakin' miles... more than once. I don't know how you do it - a measly 5-ish-mile hike did me in yesterday. LOL :-D
