First and foremost...I am completely humbled by the fact that 18 people are following my blog. I believe the number jumped up yesterday and I am shocked each and every time I check my blog and see new followers and comments from new bloggy friends.
A HUGE THANK YOU!
Moving along....the car is packed and I am ready to go. Driving to Miami today with my friend Jenn and picking up Randi (Iron Strand 2010) from the Miami Airport. Our 4 other friends will arrive over the next 24 hours. I am excited to say that my husband who tends to be a work-a-holic somehow got the weekend off so he will be arriving tomorrow and be there to watch me on Sunday, race day and my Birthday.
Everything happens for a reason and today I am feeling great. Ready to run, ready to take that next step as a runner. My body feels great, my mind feels great and whatever happens on Sunday I will be proud that I trained for months to do something many people would not even attempt.
While packing up my car I looked up and saw the simply most amazing cloud striations in the sky. Both my mom and I grabbed our cameras since neither of us have ever scene anything like it before.
Truly amazing if you ask me.
So..Off I go to Miami for what is sure to be an amazing weekend with friends. I can't wit to share my experience with everyone when I arrive home. Send good thoughts my way Sunday morning... and I can say with all honesty that the support I have felt and the feedback I have received these past 3 weeks from all of you has re energized me and made this whole experience so much more exciting. I feel like I have a team behind me!
Have a wonderful weekend full of running, relaxing and cherishing the time with family and loved ones.
