Marathon Mood

It’s hours away from the Disney marathon and I am a bundle of nerves!

 

My BFF Debbie and her fiance, Mike, got in really late last night. I am so happy that my best pal is here to run the marathon with me!! 😀

 

I woke up SUPER early this morning and couldn’t get back to sleep. My mind was racing (no pun intended) so I decided to get up and do something productive. I managed to clean out my entire closet and beneath the sink in the bathroom before Debbie and Mike woke up.

 

I snacked on a bowl of Multigrain cheerios before breakfast around 5:30 or 6am.

Once we were all up and ready, we made a real breakfast. I ate the last of the Oikos out of the tub, with fruit and nut granola, and blueberries.

After breakfast, we headed to pick up our race packets and t-shirts.

Seeing my shirt say “Marathon” made my heart skip a beat. I seriously CAN NOT believe that I am finally going to run this marathon!

I was a little disappointed to see that Debbie and I were not placed in the same corral. 😦

They base the corral on half marathon time, which makes no sense why she got placed in D, when all of our other friends (Caitlin, Kelly, and Meghann) are in C. I also have no idea why I am in B. Sub 4-hour marathon? Why does everyone keep telling me that!! I plan to stick with Debbie in corral D. I’m going to run this race for fun. Sorry, rant over.

After packet pick-up, we headed to the marathon expo at Disney’s Wide World of Sports.

It was packed!

 

I caught a glimpse our marathon medals!

I found the perfect shirt!

Toenails are for sissies. Hehe… perfect considering my toe surgery in the middle of marathon training!

While at the expo, I munched on a PB+J Larabar.

Once we got home, we turned on Spirit of the Marathon. We have it live streaming through Netflix on the Xbox 360 Live (I think).

It’s an inspiring movie, and putting us in a very marathon mood.

 

While we watched, we ate Publix subs. Normally, these guys can fill me up for at least 5 or 6 hours, but I am going to have to eat dinner again in 3.5 hours. Gah! Hurry up digesting!!!

Debbie and Mike make me laugh. They are too funny!

Oh yeah, we had some chocolate for dessert. Carbo loading, of course!

In exactly 12 hours, we will be boarding the shuttle from our hotel to the marathon starting line. AAAAAAAAH!

 

Time to get packing! I am getting SO excited! I still have no idea what to wear…
