Well this is it!
In a few hours I’m off to Portland for my first marathon!

I am so – so excited!!!

At the crack of dawn (minus 30 minutes) I was out and going around the lake alternating between a little jog and a brisk walk (because it was so cold out). Then I stopped and talked to some of the people I’ve been seeing every week for the last six months. I’ve gotten to know just about everybody’s names (and their dogs).
I was just too excited to stay in.

Today was also a special treat because I saw Marathon man. He hasn’t been around since the beginning of the summer. So it’s kinda nice to see him on my last day at the reservoir before I head off.

My bags are packed and my tunes are all ready.
Though I did over do it with what songs I wanted. A total of over 7 hours! Oops.
If you’re interested, here’s my list.

Thank you everyone soooo much for your comments and support. I hope to see some of you in Portland.

I know some of you are off to do Chicago this weekend, too!
Have a great time and I’m looking forward to your recaps next week.

Here I go . . . .
