countdown to the race

Only a few hours left before Rock the Parkway. I’m actually feeling pretty good about it. I’ve trained, I’ve prepared, and I know I’m strong enough to run it.

The weather forecasters are predicting storms for tonight and tomorrow. Of course, I don’t mind rain, but lightening would force them to cancel the race. Thankfully the worst storms are not expected to come until tomorrow afternoon/evening, but no matter what I would hate for the race to be cancelled! (Hey- if they have to cancel the race, do I still get a medal?)

I feel like I should have something profound to say, but I don’t. Tomorrow I plan to run, to do the best I can, and to have a good time while I do it. That’s all. Hopefully I won’t get any really bad blisters or other “race wounds”, although I can deal with it if I do. Hopefully I will be successful in staying hydrated. Hopefully the weather will hold. I guess the most profound thing I can say is this:

No matter what, it’s gonna be fun!
