T-minus 5 days.....

WOOT WOOT.... 5 days till marathon day.
I am excited for this Marathon:
* because it is my #11.... YAY!
* because it is doubling as our 12 yr anniversary get away
* because I LOVE THE 26.2 distance.. can't get enough.
* I will be kid-less for 2 1/2 days
* the course is a flat and fast out and back (my kind of race)
* I am needing to scratch this itch I have had since my last marathon in June
* I am feeling good and positive about a sub 4 hr.... (I know I have BQ in the past, but after moving and a lot of weight gain (14 lbs down) it has been 1 1/2 yrs since a sub 4 hr)
* I have some new/fun songs for the playlist
Not so excited:
* feeling a slight twinge behind the right knee... yikes
Not sure there will be another post before Sunday, so to all other runners with a big race this weekend..
GOOD LUCK.
**Go check out "Will run for Margaritas" she is hosting a Drymax sport sock give away. I need me some of those babies.

OK how sweet was your comment today.. I am sure that we would be FAST friends. Any chance Seattle Rock 'N' Roll is on your agenda. I am thinking of planning a BIG bloggy meet up next year for anyone coming into town to run that race.

I HIGHLY doubt that I will bandit EVER. I would be too stressed and flop on my face in the run. I am going to flex some creative muscle and figure out a way to cut costs..
