I am heading...

off to Vegas a little later today and getting very excited. My goals for this race are pretty much the same as every race:

*Finish in 4:30 (but 4:12 would be awesome!)
*Enjoy the journey
*Have fun
*Remember to RUN STRONG

I am going into this race with NO expectations. It is after all a Divine Sports race. I will be bringing my own post race food, I can't stomach hot dogs/hamburgers/taquitos after running 26.2 miles!! And I am hoping they don't run out of cups at mile 22 like they did the last time I ran it. But I am excited to run. I love the excitement and anticipation among all the runners before a race starts! I loaded a new playlist on my ipod and I am ready to run! 

I love FrayedLaces' quote:
"There will be a day when you can no longer do this. Today is NOT that day!"

Hope you all have a great weekend! Good luck to all of you who will be racing.

I just updated my post to wish you GOOD LUCK. Did I block out your marathon because I'm jealous you're headed to Vegas??? No, I don't think so-- I'm thrilled for you! I can't wait to hear about it. I love your goals.

awwww! I want to scream with excitment for you. I miss it so much and it has only been since Ogden which we started together in May. (about 7months) I am itching for a marathon so badly. Good luck and I can't wait to hear all about it.
RUN STRONG!
