Patiently Waiting.....

I can't wait for marathon day. I'm nervous about it, but excited at the same time.... after reading all the recent marathon recaps from other fellow bloggers (here, here, here, here, here and soon here), I'm ready to do this!!



When I singed up for the Cape Cod marathon, I didn't give too much thought about the logistics of this race. I figured I would maybe book a room for the night somewhere local or even a couple miles away. When checking into it, I found out that most places were requiring a two night stay for that weekend. The places that didn't were already booked. Grr.. I wasn't on planning on spending $400+ for hotel stay. Then I thought worst case scenario I would wake up at 4-5 in the morning to drive 2+ hrs to then run 26.2 miles to then hop back in my car and drive 2+ hrs back home. hmm... that sounds great..... NOT!

I mentioned this dilemma to my brother in law a couple of weeks ago over a few beers. He mentioned to me that he knew someone that has a vacation house down at the cape and was going to ask if we could use it for that weekend..... SCORE!!!! A week later he called me and said that we got the house from Thursday to Sunday and the best part, at no charge! Woot!! 

This is going to be an awesome weekend! A week and a half away. I'm patiently waiting! ......... I can't wait!

Have fun at the Cape! I'd never been there before running Ragnar there in the spring and it was simply a spectacular place to run. And thanks for the tag! I'll be rooting for you:)

Oh, and nice header!

Remember it's just an easy 20 miler with a little 10k at the end. You can run 10k any day of the week!

Awesome. Even if you have the crappiest run (and you won't) it won't matter because you've already won.
