BayState Marathon - It's my first...

... and I can't wait!

I'm so excited about this race! It's still almost 2 days away but it's all I can think about. Does anybody else get completely pre-occupied about racing?

I don't want to get myself psyched up too early, so I'm trying to stay calm and relaxed today and into tomorrow. I keep telling myself there's nothing left for me to do now but eat and sleep well -- and post on TE to spread the excitement!

Counting down until Sunday at 8:30am

I love your avatar picture.

In those last few days before a bit race, it's anything I can do to stay focused. Combine an upcoming race with Friday-itis and I'm about spent.

You aren't alone!

I have horrible pre-race ADD.

Especially when it's a big race that I've put a lot of training effort into.

You're right, just rest and eat well between now and then. Going out to a movie works pretty well to get your mind off things too.

Enjoy your race on Sunday!!! I'm sure you'll do great!

As for me: I've got a 15k tomorrow. Some of the runners wear costumes since it's closer to halloween and I've decided to join in the fun this year. I'm going as an escaped convict. Figure it makes more sense for me to be running in a costume like that.

I'll post pictures later so that you guys can see!

Good luck and have a great time!

I can't wait to see pictures from that costume!
