I set my alarm for 4:45 this morning. My clothes were already laid out so I could quickly and quietly get dressed without waking anyone in the house. Pretty much standard pre-race ritual stuff. This morning I’m heading to the city for Marine Corps Marathon, only of course I’m not actually running it this time (not the whole thing, anyway). Instead, I’m picking up my sister, my client Paul and another running buddy Justin to drive them all down there and see them off at the start. It is going to be a great day.
I’m so proud of each of them for training smart and hard to get themselves to the start line today. It is a tremendous accomplishment. I’m grateful to be there to support them and all the other runners out on the course on this beautiful day. I have never really spectated this race before and I’m excited to witness the power of my favorite marathon from a new perspective.
Marathon day makes me giddy!!!
