Well, this is it.

I am at Matt’s house and now just mere hours away from the marathon. I am psyched and a little nervous. It has been five years since I have done one of these. We’ll see how I hold up.

Matt and I are heading over to the expo to pick up my race number and do some shopping. I am thinking something in spandex? Kidding. Maybe get some runner bling though.

Then I will get myself a famous Philly pretzel and a cheese steak. Watch the Notre Dame game against that other pseudo-Catholic college, B.C.

Then off to bed to get up at 4am.

Then 26.2. I will let you know how it goes. Keep me in your prayers.
