Single digits.

Shit is getting real, y'all.

In just under 9 days from now, I will be running my first marathon.

Let that sink in for a minute.

I will be first...MARATHON.

It's kind of a big deal.

And I'm kind of freaking out.

I have no idea what to wear, but for months I have toyed with the idea of wearing a Wonder Woman shirt (the nickname my sister-in-law gave me somewhere along the way during my training). So I may or may not have just ordered this shirt:
It's not a running shirt, but I'm not sure that I care.

I've been stalking the weather forecast even though it could and probably will change 10 times before next weekend. It's been anywhere from 48*-60*...the lower it stays on that spectrum (or even lower), that happier I will be!

I have found that everything they say about taper blues is true...I'm not running nearly as much as I would like to, and my brain is not. happy.  I'm trying to just ride it out the best I can. 

Easier said than done.

Only a few more days until spring semester starts (which = BUSY). A week from RIGHT NOW I will
be heading out the door and on my way to South Carolina!


  1. I say rock the crap out of that wonderwoman shirt :) I think it will give you extra speed and endurance for your race!! Good luck, I'll be looking forward to hearing about it! I'm signed up for my first 1/2 this coming May and I'm already terrified ;)

  2. Just put a running shirt underneath and the wonderwoman shirt will totally work!!! I feel like I will write the exact same post 9 days before my marathon! I can't wait to hear about it!!!! You can do it!!!
