I’m the luckiest girl in the world. Today my head is pounding, my sinuses are inflammed, my hormones are raging, I have a yeast infection and I just started my period. The lucky part is that it should be OVER by Sunday, race day – let’s hope. Nothing bites more than running 26.2 miles with a tampon to chaf your insides. Sorry guys – I wouldn’t want an appendage that did things without my control either – you can post away all you want about that. Mother nature is playing the funniest joke on me. I’m laughing.
Ok, now seriously, my list is ready, my suitcase is out, and the packing has begun. I’m not quite sure how to carry my gels. I think I’m going to put two under my hat and carry one. I was going to do one every six miles and they are supposed to have a gel station at mile 18. Maybe I should take 4 or 5. Will it look greedy if I stash 2 under my hat at mile 18? Should I wear my race belt or not . . .hmmm, just can’t decide. This is my third marathon and I am STILL nervous.
