UGH! I just got done reading that post from yesterday. I must have been having a really bad day. My foot felt a bit sore, and I think that got me a little down. I've noticed there's been days when my foots feels almost 100% So I get all excited and start doing stuff like taking my little ones on a walk and cleaning all day, only to have a sucky day the next day. This has happen a couple of times. Yesterday was the day after a good day. I just can't stop all together, specially with my 4 and 2 year old. They are always on the move, and I'm right behind them. Anyway, I am trying to stay possitive, it's hard but I am trying.

So on a possitive note. I went to pick up my packet today! I wanted to go today so I could find the KT Tape sales people and have them tape me up TODAY, I found them! I don't know what I was most excited about, the tape or getting my bib and shirt. I've been using the tape I just didn't know if I was applying it right, I wasn't, but now I am! I have to say it does help.

Also, on being positive. From the very beginning I had talked to my sisters and asked to run part of the race with me, 2 or 3 miles and they happily accepted, they have been training for the past few weeks. I also have another couple of friends who will be running with me after mile 23, one of them just ran the St. Louis Marathon last weekend, also her first marathon and my other friend is also a runner, has ran a couple halfs, they will be bringing me home after mile 23. So those are things I am really excited and looking forward to. All along I've kind of had this time goal in the back of my head, now it's shifted to just finishing. I was watching "Spirit of the Marathon" yesterday, by the way I cried the whole time, and just realized that I might had taken myself too seriously. I'm no professional athlete, I'm not gonna win the race, so I might as well just relax and have fun, whatever that means, nothing about running 26.2 miles could be fun, Aaaaah!

Anyway, this has been a learning experience and I have not even run the thing. I'm sure I will learn a whole let after I get to check that one off my list. Ready or not, here I go!


  1. I'm glad you're excited and ready to run! It will be good! And I cry every time I watch that movie too.

  2. Looking forward to hearing how Saturday went!

    I'll check back again!
