Well I just checked my e-mail and I have received my Chicago Marathon Bib number today - 32955.
I knew that race day was approaching fast - 22:11:47 days to go, but who's counting! It's going to be here before I know it. Now my nerves are going a little haywire.
Tomorrow morning I'm waking up at 5am & heading to the lake front for a 20 mile run. 20 miles is the farthest you go before the actual race day. In the next few weeks I will be cutting back my training schedule and really focusing on getting my rest. Heck, I'll need it after I finish the 20 miles tomorrow! Actually this is going to sound a little strange but I am excited to run the 20... I think it's a complete mental thing and I just want to know that I can. I already think I'm going to do it again next year, this year is just my warm up.
I'll keep everyone posted on how I do tomorrow, say a few prayers to help me finish strong!
