Just about 1 week left!

Yes well you can say I am freaking out now! Just a little over a week left before the 1/2 marathon. I was feeling pretty good until I just looked over the course map... it looks so long! I am very excitted but a lot freaked out too. I have done a total of 10 miles, not the actual 13.1. It took me quite a while to do the 10 miles, so no I am not thinking I will break any records. However I think the butterflies I feel are pretty cool. I haven't been this nervous and excitted,scared in a while - all in a good way! lol the funny kicker here is that my friend Kalei is the one that originally wanted to do the 1/2 marathon, and I don't think she is acutally signed up! Then well ofcourse there are other crazy friends that keep me motivated. Angela, Liz and Jodi thanks ladies for "making" me do this! Yes Liz I will be picking you up on the way to the race - just so you don't get lost!! Smiles to you all - pray for no rain.

I just wanted to remind you that I hate you :) I have been up since 4AM thinking about how I am going to finish this race without the aid of a medic:)U R right about the butterflies. It's awesome to work so hard for something that you NEVER thought you could achieve. Go woman power!

Now only 5 days left and I still hate you...love you dearly ...but really hate you at the same time. I will sing your praises when I posses that metal :) Can't we just go on another cruise, eat and not be encouraged to do the Ironman? Yet again ,it's exactly 3:47 am as I am writing this and I am up with the little butterflies :) Yes I will be napping today. Getting ready for carb loading time. MMMMM potatoes :)

Love,
the friend that hates you,

Liz :)
