Well, this is it.  I’m packed and ready to go to Scranton, Pennsylvania.  My husband, two daughters, and I are going to the Runners Expo to get my bib number, see the sights, and have a past dinner with my new running friends.  And tomorrow morning is the marathon!  There’s nothing left to prepare for physically.  I’ve done everything I could do.  I’ve encountered some injuries along the way recently and I hope I will be able to overcome them tomorrow.  I’ve given my body rest and iced it all I could.  Now, I just have to make sure I’m mentally prepared.  I don’t think I’m there yet.  I’m a nervous wreck.  I need to find my inner calm.  I just want to do well and not disappoint anyone or report back that I couldn’t finish.  How embarrassing would that be?  I’m very very happy to know that I will have a support team there; my husband and kids.  That means more to me than anything.  I don’t think they realize how grateful I am that they are coming.  I asked my daughters to give me a good luck charm to have during the race.  Anna gave me a red heart silly band (for love) and Samantha gave me a green 4 leaf clover silly band (for luck).  How fitting is that?  Tomorrow I will run for love and will need a bit of luck to help me along the way.
