Can I tell you how excited I am for the Boston Marathon? I am way, super-duper, unbelievably, giddy excited!!
Only one more week and the day will be here.
I feel I have prepared for it with my training. I have put the miles in. My body is doing well. I have eaten entirely too much junk food, as evidenced by my recipe posts. I have the plane tickets, the hotel, the itinerary set, and even dinner reservation made.
We plan to do a lot more than just run a marathon while we are in Boston. The Boston temple, John Adams house, Freedom Trail, Legal Seafood, Durgin Park, Boston Commons, spending entirely too much money at the expo (i have my eye on an Adidas jacket), Elite milers race, we are packing a marathon plus into our week in Boston.
I can't believe that in less than a week, all the anticipation will be over. The race will be over and hopefully I will be happy with the results. I am going in with little expectations. I have been told by other Boston runners, to just have fun at your first one. I plan to, but I still hope I do well. I have trained enough and feel I am even a little faster than I was before St. George. But I don't know the course, I do know it is a slower one. And you just never know about that fickle weather in Boston.
But whatever happens, I am very excited and just will be happy to participate in such an event.
