4 more days, people. 4 MORE DAYS!! #Chicagomarathon
Sorry, but I'm freaking out! Not in a scared way, but in a I've never been this excited sort of way. My poor stomach has been a ball of nerves and butterflies all week, and I have a feeling it's only going to get worse!


Of course I've been stalking the weather, and now it says Sunday will be raining and 50. What??? Noooo! I'm hoping and praying it's wrong!

 I've been trying to do things to take my mind off the marathon and be a little less obsessive. (Not working too well.)
Last night I went to my cute boy's last football game. 



My little boy likes this little girl. He's too young for a girlfriend!! ;)   



I got a delicious package in the mail from Erin, at Kind Snacks! It don't get much better than this! ;)
I had only tried a couple flavors before, so I can't wait to try them all!


I had a goal to lose 15 lbs by this marathon, and as of this morning, I've lost 13! I usually gain during training, so this was a nice surprise! I have no doubt that I'll reach my goal by Sunday!


 Now I'm off to do some of this. (The keeping calm part, of course)


How do you calm your jitters before a race??

Do you like Kind bars too?

  1. You're gonna rock the marathon! Maybe use some of that nervous energy to do some light physical activity, like walking, hiking, etc.
