I'll be in the home stretch of the NYC half marathon (I hope)!
It's just past 9:00 pm and I'm getting ready for bed, hoping to get in over 7 hours of sleep before the race. I feel rested, but otherwise unprepared, so I'm curious to see how I'll do. I haven't run in almost 2 weeks, and I still have a bit of a cough from the bronchitis, but I think I'm healthy enough. I've been feeling butterflies all day--nervous like I feel before presenting a book at our acquisition meeting, or how I used to feel before a test, or before I give a speech, or before going on a first date with someone I think I like. Nervous excited.
I just cooked a huge pasta dinner: whole wheat penne pasta with garlic, tomatoes, corn, white wine, spinach, and turkey meatballs. Loading up on the carbs! Bring on the 13.1 miles!! But first, reading more of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and then sleep. I'll let you all know how it goes.
