Short and Sweet

Unlike tomorrow's main event, this post will be short and sweet.

Barring any unforeseen events or misfortunes, I will run the Layton Marathon. I'm certain it will be long and grueling.  For most of the day today I have been nervous to the point of distraction.  So you can imagine how grateful I was to get a knock on the door this afternoon from thoughtful friends delivering this little bundle of my favorite energy snacks.

I was so relieved when Abe came home.  He whisked me away to Layton to pick up my race packet and drive a bit of the course so I would know what to expect.
That made me feel so much more relaxed.  The course is very flat and quite picturesque.  
Not only did we come home to delicious cheerleader brownies from a great friend, but we came home and they were still there!  The children hadn't eaten them!!  This is a good omen.  I don't know what it is an omen of, but I'm sure it's good. 

I will now pin on my bib number and get into my bed and use every relaxation technique I can think of to try to get a good night's sleep.  Well, half a night's sleep.  I'll be getting up at  3:45 AM.

Remind me again why I decided to do this marathon thing?  I think I like to run and it had something to do with overcoming hard things, but the reasons seem a little fuzzy at the moment.  I'm sure I'll have clarity tomorrow.  Look for pictures tomorrow.  I think I'll be able to type as I spend the afternoon in my bed recovering:)
