2 more days until I run the marathon. I'm going to be getting up a 3:15 to catch a 3:45 bus. Then I'll get to wait by a fire in a barrel, trying not to freeze up Provo Canyon. Then, I can get smooshed like a sardine with the other 2000 people at the starting line. All so I can run for 5+ hours and burn roughly the equavilent calories to one pound of fat.
To prove I can. To prove to myself that I can do something that's hard, painful, and sometimes makes me cry... and still push through and finish. It's my reminder that I can beat anything. One step at a time. With lots of walking breaks. ;)
I'll post all about the race either late Saturday or Sunday. Assuming my legs haven't fallen off.
And in case you are wondering, the best things running a marathon? The finishers medal... And the after marathon meal. I've just burned 3500 calories. I can eat ANYTHING ;p
