Any excuse to eat a large bowl of pasta…

[140 days to go] Only 13 hours until the start of the half marathon! I am about to sit down to a pasta dinner with my family to do a group carbo-load… hopefully it will give The Man and I some extra energy for the hot hot heat expected tomorrow. I’m a little nervous about over-heating, especially with my previous experience with heat exhaustion, but my goal is finishing the 13.2 miles – not breaking any records. Here is THE PLAN for tonight and tomorrow:

7 pm: Pasta dinner! (om, nom, nom)

9 pm: Early to bed. Hopefully I will be able to fall asleep quickly and not be up feeling nervous

5:30 am: Early to rise! Eat a small breakfast of a banana and one small pancake (which The Man assures me he will be willing to make fresh in the morning – what a hunk)

6:o0 am: Apply sunscreen liberally & don super short shorts

6:30 am: Head over to the starting line, at the Seaport World Trade Center, and pick up number and race chip

8:00 am: Race time!

Here’s to the start of something good. Looking forward to updates after the race!

    Enjoyed catching up on your blog. Great job! Great job in your accomplishments! You are an awesome woman!!! Hope the practice marathon went well. Can’t wait to hear from you.

    A few days ago at the gym I read an article from “Self” about a person who also was a runner. I believe you can look it up on line. She gives advice and what she listens to to keep motivated.

    Congrats!!

    Love you!!!!
