26.2 in 22

I cannot believe it. In just 22 hours I will be running a marathon. I am a total mess today. It is all I can think about, and I find myself wanting everyone to know it. I wish I had gotten a t-shirt printed up that says, "Be patient with me, I'm running a marathon tomorrow," just so I can act like a total idiot and not have to try to explain myself. It would also serve the purpose of starting conversations about it, as that is all I want to talk about today, it seems. Is it wrong to send a mass email to everyone you have ever had email communication with, just to let them know you are running 26.2 tomorrow?
Last night I was supposed to get a really good night's sleep. Of course, my boys had other plans for me. They did not go to bed until after 10pm, and woke up all night starting at 2:30am. My two year old woke up for the day at 5am. Thanks, boys. My husband was wonderful. He got home late from a track meet, and still woke up with the boys in the night and tried to let me sleep as much as I could. He is fabulous, and has been very supportive about my training. It is a huge time commitment to log all those miles, and he has always been great about watching the boys or being okay with me getting a sitter for those times he had to be gone for coaching. What a man!
After I run this thing, I plan to really step back on the mileage for a month or two and focus more on cross-training. I just signed up for a summer boot camp, so I will be sweating it out with a bunch of other ladies. I did a boot camp in the winter and loved it, and really saw some great results. I plan to start training for Nike around the end of July.
Wish me luck, blogworld! See you on the other side!
