Calm, Cool & Collected

Definitely.  Those words have definitely described me over the past few weeks.  I'm completely together.  Nothing big going on this weekend.  Just another marathon.  Another race, different location.  I've done this before.  Old hat. 

Those are the words that I keep telling myself.  But for some unknown, weird, odd reason my chest hurts.  I don't want to eat.  And the numbers 3:35, 3:31, 3:29 keep flashing through my head.  All the time.  I'm having a love/hate relationship with this race.  I can't wait for it to come and I can't wait for it to be over.

It's gonna be amazing.  No matter what I'm getting a PR.  That's for sure.  And...  I've got an ace in my back pocket.

Yep.  I'm chasin' this lady down.  She's heading straight to BQville and I'm tagging along for the ride.  Maybe afterwards we can hang a right and head over to abville so I can pick up a set of those too.  ;)

Training is done...for this go around... time to see if I did enough.  I'm feelin' like I did... 

Good luck to all the other racers this weekend!!!  I'm still out of the loop but I know I'm meeting Supermom Erin this weekend!!! Yay!  And good luck to Caroline at your Disneyland half!!  This weekend is giving off good vibes.  High fives, hugs, tears, smiles are all coming Saturday afternoon.  For sure. 

Calm, cool, collected.  Wait, I think I need to throw up...  No, false alarm.  Back to being calm, cool, collected. ;)
