It's here

Well I've run and ogled over Bill, I've been to the expo 3 times, I've attached my bid and strapped on my chip. My socks are on top of my shoes and my E-Gels are already in my Race-Ready pockets. I have Paula all charged up, I have eaten pasta and drank gallons of water.

I'm as freakin' ready as I can get!

Forecast for tomorrow morning.... Sever Thunderstorms with hail. South wind at 20 gusting to 30.

BRING IT ON! I've faced down those weather Gods before and I know their tricks.

My bib number is 1945 if you want to track me somehow. There may be a link on the Marathon Website

I have so much to write about but need some sleep. I'm finishing up my game of Go-Fish with The Little One and we are going to sleep. He just asked me if I have any 'Ps'. I think he means '9s' but you never know with this one, he is wearing 3-D glasses after all.

My wife ran her first half marathon today in Nashville, she and her sister rocked it and had a ball. Really though, who gets a mani-petti after a race??? I guess it's a women thing.

Thanks for listening

I would get a manicure and a pedicure after a race-so it must be a girl thing! I heard it was HOT in nashville and numerous peeps went to hospital and that they had a said outcome as one person finished. SO I hope your wife wasn't too tweaked by the weather.

I hope it doesn't thunderstorm for you tomorrow!!! Even though I like rain I won't wish that on you!!

Get some sleep!!

I just checked and saw your results!!!!!


So happy for you Willie - is that what you wanted as a time? To run in wind gusts and with possible thunderstorms - you are amazing.

To think just a few months ago, you couldn't run at all, and had to stick with the pool, and now you just ran a full again today - so happy for you, Willie.

You don't reply to my texts, but I stalked your results anyway.

Nice job out there Mr. Smug Mug (oh yes, I said it again!)

Oh and YAY Ms. Willie!!

Obviously you get a mani-pedi after a race. What were you born in a barn? ;o)
