There better be beer at the end of this...

Hopefully this post does not turn out to be one from the grave...

It is 4:56 pm on Saturday, October 1st, 2011.  Ahhhh, October, my favorite month of the year.

By now, I have hopefully crossed the finish line and am calling myself a "marathoner".  Either that or they are trying to find my dead body, or I am in a hospital somewhere asking for the good drugs.

But in the real time that you will be reading this, I will be in the midst of the race.  At this point I could be feeling strong and powerful, or I could be crying and bleeding and begging for lightning to strike me down.  

I’m sure I have hit a (hopefully small) wall or two…

I’m sure I have already thought that there is no way I can do this…

I’m sure I have thought for the trillionth time so far this morning that this was a stupid ass decision on my part…

But maybe, just maybe, I am feeling OK.

Maybe my determination and willpower is staying strong and maybe I am fighting. 

I really hope I am fighting.

Maybe I am falling in love with running all over again.  Maybe I am loving myself even more.

I pray that my legs do not give out.  I pray that my hip stays strong.  I pray that the wind is to my back.  I pray that I do not freeze.  I pray that I do not poop my $100 compression pants.  I pray that medics do not have to carry me off the course.

I pray that I cross that finish line.

When you all read this, I don’t know where I will be along the course…but I sure do hope that I am going strong and that the finish line is getting closer. 

And if I feel like giving up soon, I hope I think about all the shit I’ve put in my mouth the past 3 days and how I need to burn off a couple of pounds ;)
