Early to bed

Happy race eve, friends.  Just a quick note to tell you I made it to my parents house in NY without a hitch.  Spent today running a couple errands, driving the race course, going out to dinner, and seeing family.  I was ready for bed about an hour after I woke up this morning.  It took me a while to fall asleep last night, different bed and all, and I had some unhappy dreams that I won't get into here.  Right now the family is gathered in the living room watching the Yankees/Red Sox game.  It isn't often that we are all together, and 4 of the 5 of us are running in the half or 5k tomorrow.  Mom is going to be our number one cheerleader, which as you all know is an incredibly important job.  We need to be out the door at 6:30 tomorrow morning so I am not sure how much longer I am going to stay up tonight.  My bib is pinned to my shirt and my chip is already attached to my shoe.  I just have a few more things to set out tonight and then I'm going to bed.  I think I'll put a movie on and just (hopefully) pass out.  Please send me lots of good vibes for tomorrow! Congrats and/or good luck to all the other racers this weekend!


  1. Good luck tomorrow! How cool that your whole family is participating in this together--can't wait to hear all about it!!

  2. Thanks! Yeah, I think it is pretty special that this is a family affair. My brother-in-law and I ran the half, my sister and dad ran the 5k. My mom says she and some other runners wives are going to walk the 5k next year so everyone will be in on the fun! Can't wait for you to run your half and hear all about it. I know you're going to kill it!
