So the day has arrived! It seems like ages ago that I started this journey. Each day I marked off the training on the overview of the entire training schedule. 16 weeks of training and there are no more boxes left to cross off. It is game time! I am nervous and excited and will finish this race come hell or high water. I coughed up some blood today on the final training run. CF just giving me one last little F-you before I kick its ass tomorrow.
The support these past few days has been overwhelming. I am humbled by the beautiful article that was in the NY Times.
I love you all! Thank you for all of your support, advice and encouragement.
It is time for me to get some sleep before I wake up and catch a bus at 5:45am out to Staten Island. Goodnight. If you see me out there tomorrow scream my name loud and know that you are helping me get to the finish line.
Thanks for reading.
