Calm and Peaceful

Once again, I am marathon ready! I have a short and easy three mile run in the morning (that I am hoping to do with Josh) and then I will be hitting the road around noon with my friend, Alana, for Logan, UT.

My Brooks running bag is packed and I am well-hydrated, adequately tapered, and as rested as a mom of 12 can get. A couple of days ago I was exploding with excitement. I am still very excited, but now I have a really calm and peaceful feeling about this weekend and this race. It's going to be good. It's going to be fun. I am going to enjoy it and smile a lot. I am going to run fast. :)

Yay for the Top of Utah Marathon!

I am bringing the lap top and have late check out at the hotel so we can go back and get showered before the drive home, so I will post a quick update as soon as I can after the race, and I will be updating on Twitter so if you don't follow me yet and want to, you can follow @seemomrunfar

The next time I post I will qualify to be a Marathon Maniac! :)

On to marathon mission 3:2x:xx

More soon!!

Hahaha--I am the exact opposite of calm and peaceful! But it should be good--the weather looks fantastic!

I hope we can meet at some point while there! It would be great to see you!

Good luck and I love the calm and peaceful time. I am in it now and savoring it because I honestly think come Saturday I will be a nervous wreck!

Good luck!

I would love to run the Top of Utah race. In fact, there are a lot of UT races I would like to do. Plus I have lots of family in Utah, so then maybe they'd come cheer for me on the course! ;-)
