26.2 and California here I come!


I thought I would check in before things get too hectic, I'm probably not going to get to post again until post-marathon so this is my last post before my life changes forever. (OK so that might be a little dramatic but whatever.)

Anyway, I didn't do too much running this week. Just a couple of easy miles. My hip has been achey for the last few weeks and when I began to run last night it started up and I decided I would just blow off the few miles in lieu of extra rest for the hip. After the marathon, I'm considering having it looked at. It only really hurts when I run and for a day or two after but it's enough to be pretty annoying.

Enough with the idle chit-chat.

Deep breath.

I'm gonna run a marathon! Holy crap. I'm going to be running a marathon in less than 48 hours.

I'm excited, scared, nervous but I'm gonna do it.

Thanks for to you for your support, cheering, shoulder to cry on and all the other stuff you've given me to help me get to this point.

I've gotta go pack now. Wish me luck and I'll see you again when I get to the other side. :)

XO
Jen

I'd wish you luck but that's not what you need!

So instead, I wish you good weather, a good night's sleep and the strength and determination to push through the rough parts. And then I wish you a speedy recovery and drinks next week in LA so I can hear all about it. Woohoo!
