Check, Check and Check

I have to run a marathon tomorrow. I'm talking 26.2 miles. I'm talking 42.2km. I'm talking a hell of a long way.

I'm running a marathon. Holy bjeebers. I have no coherent thoughts, so I'm just going to mentally go through the checklists (by writing them down on my blog) and then going to say "Farewell" until after I have run.

  • Checklists completed: CHECK
  • Bib and chip attatched: CHECK
  • Close laid out-CHECK
  • Mantras written down on arm: almost CHECK
  • Playlists Made: CHECK
  • Water into me: CHECK
  • Post Race Bag packed: CHECK
  • Mental ready: not soo much

Tomorrows the day. The day I've been waiting for since I started training. I feel like I've done my training and I'm as ready as I ever will be.

Here is the goal, one more time, in writing:

I am going to finish, with nothing left. I want to know that I gave it 190% and couldn't have done anything differently, I will be happy.

So there it is! I'm doing it. This is it!

Lots of pictures to come, but no time to post them now.

I had the privelege of meeting Marci, Marlene and Laurel today! IT was so neat to meet you ladies in person! And apparently, we're all honorary WOO-HOOS!

I bet you're all jealous. You should be :)

This is all you'll hear from me til it's over! My bib number is 1634. You can track me if you want on : www.sportstats.ca -Emily Letourneau.

See you on the flip side
