3 Things Marathon MADNESS

1.  Second 20 miler of the training cycle is on Sunday.  I'm 5087% more nervous about this 20 than the last one.  Yea, I don't know.  Maybe it's because the last one went pretty well.

2.  I signed up for NATIONAL MARATHON!  Yeah!  I'm stoked.  So SpeeDee, T & I are running it, and we're all married to Red Sox fanatics.  We're creating a (VERY UNOFFICIAL) Team Redsox Nation for the run - if you're running National and wish to Sox with us - here's a link to the "team shirt" & another link to the "team socks".  A White skirt can be purchased anywhere.

3.  I'm starting to have MARATHON sized nightmares about the marathon.  In one dream I can't reach the finish -which is not on the road, instead its 13 loops around a hill to reach a gray stone tower, and the finish is 100 steps up the tower, and I can't even get to the base of the tower!!!  I'm crawling up the grass at one point in the dream, on my hands and knees, and my watch says 44minute/mi pace, and I freaking out because I'd been on track to PR but now... I'm NOT!   So.  That's the first dream.  Hopefully the last one too.  Hmm.  I need to drink less coffee.

Sorry but I laughed at your dream and then comment on coffee because I'm only running a 10k and my coffee is keeping me up at night too. Or is it the race? Either way, no sleep.

You guys are so fortunate to have a group to run races with. That has to be a great time. I struggle to stay with one person!

Take a deep breath. Now let it out... Actually you'll probably be feeling this way til the shot gun goes off at the start line. It's just the excitement that goes with marathon running! Love it! It's gonna be who really runs a 44 min/mi pace - that's just crazy... :)
