I am all packed and ready for Seattle. I have all my running gear and umbrella and gloves and 4 pairs of shoes (!!!!) for a 3 day trip. I know what my priorities are.
The Marathon is just in like 2 days!
My last day of work this week, a coworker gave me 2 candy bars – a King Sized KitKat (YUM!) and some Dove Dark Chocolate. He said I need calories for my marathon. Thank god he doesn’t notice my tummy and all the calories stored there.
I can’t believe I am going to do this. I got a game plan. I am planning on starting with the walkers and I am going to walk at least the first 10 miles. That way, I can finish strong slogging at the end. Sunday is going to be taking me at least 6 hours.
I spent at least 3 hours last night getting my ipod playlist specifically for Seattle set up. I got common Seattle bands like Pearl Jam and Bikini Kill. But I also have uncommon bands like Deerhoof, and the now defunct These Arms Are Snakes. I also put in a bunch of other random things that I found on my itunes that I have not listened to in a while. Like, The Go! Team. God, I love them.
I didn’t sleep very well last night as I do not like to fly. I am taking Ativan for the first time today, because, I really, really, really hate to fly. I know everything will be ok, and I will be a successful marathon finisher, but, I have to get to that Pacific Time Zone first. Ugh.
Have you ever taking anything to take the edge off when you fly?
