Channeling Greatness

In just 36 hours I will be standing at the starting line of the Surf City Marathon.

This is how I prepared:

I channeled Janae 
That Hungry Runner Girl loves her Skittles and Beta Alanine. 
She is shooting for a sub 3 hour marathon in Boston (I am shooting for the finish line.)  

I meditated
to become one with EMZ.  That girl has some mojo! 

I wore my SUAR sticker
I think my ass is the only place Beth would want it, anyway. :)

I ate
...and I ate
...and I ate some more.

I am pretty certain that the weight I mysteriously lost during training was all gained back this week.  Oh well.  A girl's gotta eat!

I want to say THANK YOU so much to all of you for your e-mails, comments and cards.  You have given me so much encouragement and confidence.  
T-h-a-n-k Y-o-u from the bottom of my heart.



And thank you EMZ for this awesome T-Shirt!

  37. Look at all that delicious food! I hope you were channeling ME while eating!

    All joking aside, YOU are such an inspiration to me. I have feeling that sometime during those 26.2 miles the motivation you're channeling is going to come from within you and you will feel as moved by what you're doing as I am and as your other readers are. I know you're going to kick some asphalt and finish with a huge smile on your face. I'm thinking of you this weekend...rock it.
