Judgement Day

July 30, 2010

Well, actually, it's judgement night. The race starts at 7 o'clock, which means, if you all send enough good vibes my way, it will end a few minutes before 10:40.

Trust me when I tell you, there is nothing, NOTHING, that simultaneously humbles me, thrills me, and scares the shiz out of me the way a marathon does. On mornings like this, I feel like I'm a mut who's part David (from David and Goliath), and part kid-on-Christmas-morning. It's really pretty strange.

Listen, your good vibes/prayers/positive thoughts/sun salutations have worked wonders on my long runs so far, and I could really use another round. Maybe you can set your alarm for 7 or 8 or 9 or 10 and when it unexpectedly rings, you can picture the number 3:39 on a giant digital clock and zap the mental image in my direction.

I would love that. I would really, really love that.

For now, I've got my lucky socks set to go, a new pair of Wave Rider 13s on my feet, a water bottle in my hand, and the confidence that I trained hard.

I'll let you know how it goes!!!

Judgement NIGHT? It's a nighttime marathon?

The chick at the running store put me in Wave Rider 13s, too, about 280 miles ago. About time for a new pair. Apparently yours are faster than mine.

I guess I had a lot of good vibes going your way, because I dreamt about you as I was dozing this morning. There was some weird fish thing that had to be killed and it could go 12,000 meters down into the water, and only your daughter could kill it, so you had to teach her when to stomp on it. Ha ha.

I was camping when you posted this and knew not when the actual race was but I've been sending good vibes ever since your last marathon post and I can't wait to hear how you did! You inspire me! I just finished my first week of couch 2 5k! And I have NO idea how you do the marathon! You're amazing for even doing them!!!
