Thank you for your kindness about Mary. She passed last night at 11:15, as was expected. She was very loved and will be very missed. I can not thank you enough for your sweet emails and comments. I tried to I email everyone to say thank you personally unless I didn't have your email address. I wanted to make sure everyone knew how grateful I am. Thank you! MAry would have been touched, laughed, and loved everyone of you. Especially if you are of the "generally dyfunctional, fucked up" variety. ;o)

I am off like a herd of turtles!

Mary's Race Weekend 2008 officially begins today.

I am packed, but of course, feel like I am forgetting something. I am picking up the RBR girls and we are out of here about 10:30 so we should be in Guerneville around 1:00. I am so excited to meet everyone I can barely stand it. My run buddies aren't bloggers so I think they think I am a little crazy (well, I KNOW they think I am crazy, but it may have nothing to do with blogging) Anyhoo, they are so fun and sweet that they are excited to meet everyone too.

I am bringing my computer and OF COURSE my camera! I will post updates as they become available!

Alrighty, let's ROCK THIS BITCH!

Kick some ass! I got to say, I think of Misty from Athena Diaries as being a bit of legend in her own time (I tell her Ironman tale often!)... I totally get your excitement.

I read about Mary and am so sad for your loss. Your dedication of the race to her sounds like something she would want you to do. I am hoping you did well and felt her strength the whole way.
hugs, Debi :)
