It's getting close now!!

I have my bib. I have my chip. I am official!

We went to the Expo today and I have to say I was pretty excited to get all my stuff. For a while, I felt a little giddy. We walked around and looked at all the vendors and grabbed all the free stuff we could ;-) They had some great apparel for sale. The one I liked a lot said Rock n Roll Marathon Finisher. Lisa talked about buying one. I said, "you are going to buy that before you finish????" I admit it; I am superstitious. I can't buy something like that until I can actually say I am a FINISHER. I plan on buying one tomorrow after the race! Lisa did buy a RnR Marathon pint glass because she knew no matter what, she would be drinking a beer out of it tomorrow night.

For anyone that is interested, my bib number is 14069. You can track the results online at http://www.rnrmarathon.com/home.html by clicking the "live results" tab. The race starts at 6:30 a.m. Pacific time. They should be giving 5K, 10K, 10 mile, 13.1 mile and 20 mile split times.

I am still fighting a head cold, but it has settled mostly in my nose. I will carry some tissue with me and do my best. No stinkin' rhinovirus is going to keep me from crossing that finish line. Thanks for all the suggestions on how to beat this silly thing....

I AM STRONG AND HEALTHY!!
