6 days until the Chicago Marathon!! I am SO excited and nervous and nauseous. All at the same time!! I'm surprisingly not nervous about the 26.2 miles, I'm confidant I can do that. It's just the thought of running with 45,000 people, being in a huge city that I've never been in, and being surrounded by almost 2 million spectators!
But I am mostly excited. I can't wait to see Chicago up close and personal. I can't wait until mile 22 to see Chinatown. I can't wait to see all the cheer stations. I've never been so excited in my life!!!!
Ok, let me try to talk about something else for a minute. Believe me, it's hard.
Saturday was my last longish run. 10 glorious miles. It started out a little cool and foggy. It was beautiful and perfect.
As I was running I was thinking deep. I was thinking about how blessed I am to have the ability to run. And I absolutely adore it. I know people who have injuries and can't run, or people with bad knees or whatever it may be. I never want to take this for granted. I also think man, how can someone NOT love running? Lol! There's just something unexplainable about it.
My adorable, amazing parents celebrated their 39th anniversary this weekend!
|They are both still as handsome and stunningly beautiful today!|
Ok, back to the marathon...6 more days!! I'll try not to drive y'all crazy. If I do, I'm sorry I'm not sorry. :)
Did you run this weekend?
If it applies to you, how long have you been married?
