T-minus 5 days and counting. Holy smokes! The time is near and my nerves and excitement are building. Five days and I will be running my first full marathon. At this point in time, I’m actually more excited than I am nervous…….I’ll take it! lol
I have a super great group of running friends standing behind me, giving me pointers and great pieces of advice. I am glad I chose to make Harrisburg my first full marathon, as I have the ‘hometown’ advantage and so many people I know will be running alongside me Sunday morning. Some of my family and friends will be there cheering me on as well, which is awesome! 🙂
These last few months of training and preparing have led me to see some things much clearer than I perhaps had in the past. There are a lot of people out there that care for me and support me. It may sound a little like bragging, and perhaps it is! 😉 But I do count myself as blessed to be a part of the awesome running community I am a part of. The support and friendships of these people are ones to cherish!

I apologize for the short post and not “being around” much in the last week or so, but the time crunch is on and my brain is on overload!! I hope to catch up more with you all post-marathon. Take care and NEVER GIVE UP! 🙂
