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.
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:)
