I am getting ready for the marathon.
The cheering stations have been identified and dear hubby is working on coordinating that.
I am compiling a list of photos I want to take/ have taken to document this momentous occasion.
The bags are almost all packed with the exception of a few items- mostly gel/ liquid items that I am not quite sure what to do with. We are only going to be gone for 4 days and I definitely cannot afford to lose my luggage so I was planning on just carrying stuff on the airplane. BUT the no liquid ban could pose a problem, especially with the energy shots that I am planning to take with me.
In 30 hours we will be on our way to the airport to meet the team. Our plane departs in approximately 33 hours. I am so excited! And so nervous! I can’t believe I am actually doing this.
I’ve trained for this. Almost 5 months I have been training. I’ve lost 12 pounds and hope to continue that trend after the marathon. I’ve raised money for cancer research. I have gone farther than I ever thought I could go and I am about to stretch my limits, mentally, physically, and spiritually. I can do it! I can do it! I can do it!
I hope to finish this sock and it’s partner on the trip too! I started these socks for me, but it looks like they may be too big so I may give them to my hubby instead. Mercy thinks they are too big as well!
Well, I’m off to finish packing and packing Mercy’s stuff for the weekend at Grandma’s.
