Apparently they have clowns at this race…

That was actual footage from last year’s race.

I don’t think I have ever seen more motivation to RUN LIKE HELL!!!!!!!!! Dear God clowns scare me!

Thank you for all of your kind comments and emails of goodluck wishes!!! They warmed my heart and gave me confidence! :)

Don’t forget you can track me as I run the half from 7:30am EST (start time). Go here to the homepage and look for a link about tracking runners. Enter my bib number: 5443.

This is me sitting here in my fleece robe (running clothes on underneath!). I can’t get warm!!!

Eric bought me this robe the first year we started dating, so don’t go making jokes about my frumpy lingerie! hahaha. I love this robe…9 years I’ve had it!

Lululemon pretty much made my life this morning! They Tweeted me a message saying:

@lululemon: “we love your website! :) I read it frequently! And good luck with the bakery too!“

Ummm, no way! So cool. =)

Here are some Lululemon words of wisdom:

This first thought that came into my mind when I got up at 4:20am was ‘I’M CRAZY’. I am absolutely crazy. Who gets up this early to run 13.1 miles??

Ok, ok, me and 20,000 other people I guess!

I went to bed at 8:30pm and fell asleep at 11:30pm…awesome! lol

Sketchie even looked up at me from the warmth of Eric’s legs and he said, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me.”

He’s not impressed to be up!

I am mixed with so many emotions right now…excitement, anticipation, awe

Just a year ago, I never thought I was a runner. I did it to ‘burn calories’. I never thought I could actually run in a race. I was terrified at the thought.

Just 6 months ago, after my injury, I never thought I would run again. I was crushed. I remember back in April I ran at a 12-13 minute mile pace for 5 minutes and that was all I could do after the injury. I didn’t think I would ever be able to run fast let alone race and train.

When I trained for my first 10k race back in June, I realized that the human body is capable of amazing things when you treat it with love.

Let’s have some FUN! :)

I will be tweeting on Eric’s phone leading up to the race this morning (and immediately post-race to let you know how I did!). I will be letting you all know what is going through my head. I heard it is supposed to be crazy today- 15,000-20,000 people in this race!!! Better get on the highway!

PS I hate the weatherman!

Untitlehhhhhhhhhhhhhd

Hey I checked the results! You rocked it. Under 2 hours is a great time! And btw, I noticed that Joan Benoit Samuelson was in the race. She was a great runner of the past. She was one of the first elite female racers. That’s kinda cool you ran with a legend!
